We provide additional support to children and young people in need who are referred to our projects. Support includes:

  • one-to-one meetings with participants and parents/carers/workers to help young people access our activities,
  • ongoing individualised support throughout the project
  • bursaries for additional theatre trips/opportunities.

LYT defines participants in need as:

  • Coming from families in receipt of means-tested benefits;
  • Having a disability or special need (including a processing/learning difficulty or autism spectrum disorder);
  • Facing marginalisation or requiring additional support to take part (including looked-after children, young carers, those with mental health difficulties, those with English as an additional language; and those with low literacy/numeracy)

If you work with a young person who lives or learns in Lewisham and who could benefit from LYT’s projects, please complete a Referral Form and return it to Sheryl Malcolm, Participation Manager.
