Each summer we look long and hard for a local charity who provide a vital service in our community. We didn’t have to look far this year!
After one quick conversation we knew that Footprints Conduction Education Centre (CEC) were who we wanted to support this summer and look forward to welcoming them to our two weekly concerts.
Footprints is a Nottingham based charity which transforms the lives of children with mobility and communication difficulties across the East Midlands. At our centre and through our support, babies and children develop the skills they need to thrive and achieve their potential.Our work is inspired by the principles and practices of Conductive Education, a holistic education approach developed to help children with disabilities consciously learn the life skills that come more naturally to others. Our work encourages the development of physical, communication, social, sensory, self-help and thinking skills, such as sitting, standing, touching, listening, looking, eating and playing.We work closely with the child and their family in a safe, positive and supportive environment to encourage and motivate each child’s desire to achieve tasks. At the same time, we give families the knowledge, confidence and strength to cope with the disabilities their child lives with and understand how they can help.The age range of children attending our service is between 6 months to 11 years of age and our Education Team, together with children and families in group sessions, ensure a collaborative partnership working approach.
You can donate by way of attendance to the weekly concerts or partake in the weekly raffle!
Charity is an important part of our course ethos. We have a firm believing that the performing arts is a powerful force in charity and fund-raising. The children on the course are proud and motivated to use their talents, ideas, and efforts to raise money for charity. Each week of every course is dedicated to a certain charity.
We please take the time to learn about the wonderful organisations we are proud to work with. We are always keen to work with and learn about new charities, please get in touch if you would like to suggest a charity for us to work with.
