At Acting Now we believe theatre is a catalyst for social change and should be for anyone and everyone, not limited by physical ability, condition, language or background. Our projects use the language of theatre with disadvantaged groups of varying abilities to enable them to find their voices in a safe and encouraging environment.  

Throughout the workshops, we also build social and emotional skills, self-expression and self-esteem and address the stigma attached to certain conditions. The projects culminate in original theatre performances based on the stories that emerge from the group. 

Volunteers and actors often join our groups as enablers and work alongside our participants, helping them to participate fully in the activities. To scale our impact, we work alongside community organisations, charities and local authorities to empower their service users to take action and transform their lives.
