For Young Disabled People
Louder Than Words
Louder Than Words is a unique drama group for disabled young people aged 7+. Each week young people can have fun, make friends and learn new skills in drama, music and storytelling in a supported and friendly environment with a team of experienced practitioners.
Sessions are planned with the individual needs of young people in mind and delivered in a way which supports each group member’s development and participation and plays to their strengths.
Each term young people have the opportunity to share what they have learnt and created with their families.
The group meets on a Monday from 5.30-6.30pm
Autumn 2021 Term dates:
Monday 11 October to Monday 13 December, no session on Monday 25 October (half term)

“Monday drama is one club that she just cant wait to get to. When she is with you she can completely be her own person, follow & use her own ideas or just "be". There is nothing else like this on offer in Bristol.” Parent
