  • Increase confidence
  • Build self-esteem
  • Raise aspirations
  • Develop communication skills
  • Improve life chances

What our families say:

“Z-arts are really inclusive with our ideas. [It] makes us feel like we really fit in… our ideas want to be heard and our ideas really matter.”

“I love coming to Z-arts because the activities and classes here allow me to express my personality and open my mind to the world of creativity.”

“Z-arts has made arts and theatre particularly accessible to my family, it’s been inclusive to my child with SEN and recaptured my love for the arts.”

“My 6-year-old has autism. [It] can be isolating and it’s great finding a home from home somewhere.”

“Z-arts has given my daughter the opportunity to be a dancer and performer, which otherwise I feel she would have missed out on due to our financial situation. It is an amazing place and I don’t know what we would have done if we hadn’t found it.”
