Orpheus provides unique opportunities for young disabled adults (18-25) with a passion for performing arts. We promote transition and personal development through performing arts so students gain the skills to live independently in the community and to make informed choices about their futures.
We’ve got experienced teaching staff, excellent professional artists, a thorough work experience programme and first rate resources to support students in their journey. The unique thing about Orpheus is that we create tailored programmes to suit each individual. Students can come to us full time or part time and we can also offer domiciliary care services and supported housing. Our bespoke service means that each student’s transition is treated as individual.
We have a diverse curriculum that covers the arts, independence, employment and functional skills. We also offer Arts Awards and City and Guilds Personal Development and Employability Qualifications as well as a range of short courses and outreach programmes. Students learn a range of skills from the basics like washing up, to managing their finance and their personal support.
Supported housing at Orpheus provides students with a chance to experience independent living, all under the guidance and supervision of the domiciliary and learning teams. Our work is student focused and led, with students taking control of the way that they live and learn.
Orpheus is a small, local charity that, in the current financial climate, desperately needs your support to enable us to continue providing unique opportunities to young disabled adults. If you would like to support Orpheus, please visit our website www.orpheus.org.uk to find out how you can help.
