THE BIG HOUSE
The Big House was established in December 2012 and provides creative, supportive space for care leavers. Where they are given the platform to use their many talents and be apart of a full scale theatre production and access intensive wraparound support.
Members who complete the 12-week Open House Project take part in an innovative combination of drama workshops, theatre participation, life skills development, literacy, employment skills, and sign posting to relevant opportunities. For many participants, nightly performances are the first time in their lives they have been applauded for their hard work.
Members have gone on to have other successes such as full time employment, college and university courses and some are signed by top acting agencies and many are working on their own creative projects.
