By recording numbers of young people making use of the service. Monitoring age, ethnicity, postcode, special needs.
The project will provide more accessible inclusive performing arts activities for 11 - 16 year olds, with higher levels of support for children with disabilitiesand Special Educational Needs. Decrease inequalities through improved access to performing arts
Recruitment could be a challenge as at-risk young people are often hard to reach. However, we already have a track record of attracting young people with disabilities.

Haringey Shed is located in Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey. It is a richly diverse community - almost three-quarters of Haringey’s children and young people come from ethnic minority communities and speak 130 languages between them. However, the area faces great social challenges our local Northumberland Park ward is one of the 10% most deprived wards in England where 48% of children are living in poverty.
Local young people who are disadvantaged socially, economically and physically. 30% of our members have special needs, such as autism, Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy or need extra support due to behavioural issues. Some of them are in wheelchairsf or have a visual impairment and yet others have a range of learning disabilities. The current membership of Haringey Shed is 86% black and ethnic minority and we expect our volunteers to reflect this also.
Haringey Shed has been running performing arts workshops & delivering schools outreach programmes in Tottenham since 2000. Its aim is to advance the education of disadvantaged and disabled young people, through performing arts regardless of ability in order to encourage independence and integration into the community. We are inclusive - there are no auditions, everyone is welcome. We have a strong youth leadership with youth volunteering at the centre of our ethos.
