BCAT in the Community
Big Lottery funding for EAL project
English as an Additional Language (EAL) is one of the most pressing issues facing schools at the moment.
We are delighted to announce BLF funding to be able to pilot a project combining arts therapies with language development for those young people with EAL needs.
If you are a school who would like to participate in this project then please contact the main office on email@example.com.
Working with Spurgeons
Spurgeons is one of the UK's leading children's charities, supporting children and their families for almost 150 years. In the last year, they delivered 88 high-quality services reaching over 37,000 children and 78,000 parents or carers.
We are therefore delighted to provide our arts in health services that enable young carers to get together and enjoy some social time.

Working in community partnerships
“It was not only the children who benefited from the Arts Therapies sessions! Their parents also participated and gained considerable new insight into their children’s behaviours and how strategies might be developed to facilitate greater understanding between themselves and their children. We hope that BCAT can continue to find sufficient funding to continue to work with us”.
