EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING

Skip To The Beat (STTB) is a bespoke intensive programme lead by experienced artist facilitators and senior youth workers, delivering a series of creative arts workshops for young people with complex needs or who require different learning styles.

Using a variety of art forms and activities, the programme has been proven to improve mental well-being by providing tools to better express and self-regulate emotions. It enables the young people to embark on a journey of self-discovery, self-reflection and to learn new methods of resilience to transfer into their everyday life, impacting  not only their own lives but those of their peers and their communities.

STTB works with young people who are not in mainstream school through the referral of professionals. We deliver this programme in three models: as a one-week or two-week intensive, or a three-month program.

EDUCATE TO EMPOWER

We deliver a range of empowerment workshops...

We deliver a range of empowerment workshops, programmes and talks with our influencer ambassadors in schools and youth organisations. The focus draws on the creative arts to improve mental wellbeing, providing then with new ways of learning offering them a way of learning, how to release unexpressed emotions to become more resilient.

Our programmes include YUAF Empowers & Mind Over Matter, both of which birthed by our young people. We invite influential speakers from the creative industries to share their experiences and the tools they have developed to be resilient.

HOW DO WE FUNDRAISE?

Fundraising is the biggest challenge for all charities and because we teach young people how to be resilient, so we must practice what we teach. We are committed to diversifying our income streams to adjust to the ever-changing voluntary sector landscape so we never let our young people down.

In addition to raising funds through grants, housing associations, trusts and foundations, we work with generous and dedicated partners and brands to co-create fundraising events that generate funds and to create a space to celebrate our young talent. You can download our accounts from charity commission to see where we raise funds and most importantly, how we spend it!
