Our creative programmes support children, young people, families and communities from diverse backgrounds, and tackle educational disadvantage. We encourage learning and exploration, play and sharing across communities, whilst supporting children’s wellbeing, language, communication and transitions. We are a not-for-profit organisation and our work is only possible through the support we receive from you, our donors, partners and funders.

A donation to Groundswell Arts supports our programmes in a variety of ways. For example:
- A donation of £20 can fund the cost per child of participation in one of our Story Lab green screen and animation programmes.
- A donation of £100 can fund a bespoke song for a child as part of our Sing Our Story programme.
- A donation of £1000 can enable us to offer a series of workshops and training in a school on programmes such as Sing Our Story, Story Lab, Light Box or Forgotten Stories.
We started a crowdfunding project to support our five Story Lab partner Haringey schools to source some additional match fund to purchase new iPads. The teachers are in need for iPad apps to use across the programme, support film-making, gain new skills to support creative teaching and learning, and support the work to become fully embedded by the schools in coming years.
Your donation will support these much needed creative experiences being given to children at a time where so much opportunity for creative and cultural engagement has been lost through the pandemic.
You can donate from here. We really appreciate any help you can offer.
“We just wanted to thank you so much for E’s song. We absolutely love it! It’s amazing what you managed to cram in so beautifully. We often sing the chorus together and E corrects us if we get it wrong. He said that it’s the best song in the world. We agree. I know we’ll be enjoying it for years to come. Thank you once again for such a special gift.”

“The purpose and audience for the writing was really clear in his mind – he wrote independently with a real focus on communication, without the usual need for adult intervention to keep him on task!”
