Pushing the boundaries of outreach"Into the Unknown"

Last weekend if you listened closely you would have heard an echo in the wind at Leiston Abbey where twenty-two young people took their creativity Into The Unknown…

Leiston Abbey was transformed into Arendelle through the unrivalled vision of its outreach team involving sensational shadow puppetry and projections, stage-worthy student-led drama sketches, imaginative re-workings of Vuelie and of course the fine voices of the full chorus. It was one of the most imaginative weekends yet and the perfect way to begin 2020. You can enjoy short moments from the weekend below.

“She was made to feel so welcome and it was so professionally run. I loved the performance at the end, so many smiling faces.
Jemima hasn’t stopped talking about it, why hadn’t we heard about you before?”

The new decade brings huge expansions within Create Together, broadening both geographical reach and the variety of users who can access this transformative music programme.

There are three main channels to Pro Corda’s weekend provision; Activities Unlimited & Young Carers weekends for children and young people in Suffolk and Children in Need weekends based in Suffolk, London and Gloucestershire.

Crucially, 2020 sees a return to the Siblings and Young Carers provision to provide respite, creativity and a friendly community for those young people who have additional responsibilities in their daily lives.

“What a long way you have all come. You work so hard with these amazing people.
I am always so humbled by the looks on their faces, and the joy”

Another exciting addition will be a revamped work experience offer for young people with additional needs. Each participant will receive a custom four-day programme based at Pro Corda including an outside placement in the local community. The core value of this experience is to equip young people with essential life-skills to help them to live independently. Many thanks to Adnams Community Trust and Suffolk Foundation for their support of this programme.

Exciting times ahead!
