PWB-UK (or PUK) aims to teach performing arts and circus skills to financially, physically or mentally disabled young people (ages 5 to 27) across the UK. This includes blind, physically challenged, deaf or those within the Autism or Aspergers spectrum or other mental challenges, refugees and asylum seekers 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 workshops and projects with various partners in the UK (see below) and are always 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.
