PWB-UK (or PUK) aims to teach performing arts and circus skills to financially, physically or mentally disabled young people (ages 5 to 25) across the UK. This includes blind and deaf children, physically challenged children, those within the Autism or Aspergers spectrum or other mental challenges, and those growing up in rural or urban deprived areas.
PUK was launched in 2018 and was aimed at building on our success teaching performing arts and circus skills abroad, mainly working with orphans and vulnerable children via partner organisations in India, Kenya and Nicaragua. We have run several successful taster workshops with various partners in the UK (see below) and are looking to expand on this by finding new partners, funding bodies, sponsors and collaborators. Please see our research page on the benefits of learning circus skills.
