We welcome anybody to Bright Lights who feels they need a little extra support. We always have fun, sing, dance and act in our sessions, and each week we try to follow a similar structure, so participants know what to expect when they are in the room.

We also visit the Cast’s theatre spaces and make sure we keep everybody up to date on relaxed performances and additional ways to interact with creative and sensory workshops and performances.

Young People are welcome to attend independently, or parents/carers can wait downstairs where they often have some social time together.
For Young People with complicated medical needs or who prefer support from a trusted adult, parents and carers are asked to stay in the session and have some bonding time through our creative play.

In session we integrate Makaton, use visual aids and sensory equipment, and we support additional physical needs.

Before a Young Persons first session with us, we try to have a conversation with family and carers to make sure the room is ready for a relaxing first visit.
