Lighting up lives

We couldn’t do what we do without our core funders, Inverclyde Council and Creative Scotland, but we actively look for additional trusts and foundations, and other major and individual donors and sponsors to support us. This helps us to look after our building, book great shows and expand our outreach and engagement activities. In short, it helps us to light up lives.

Creating opportunities for growth

Enabling children and young people to regularly engage with the arts can have a hugely positive impact on their personal development and educational attainment. Children and young people aged between 5 and 18 years attend Beacon Youth Theatre each week during school term to develop their creative skills, widen their social network and improve their confidence. We also offer work placement opportunities to local school pupils interested in pursuing a career in the arts and we deliver creative projects in nurseries, schools, libraries and community centres, such as our Green Arts Initiative Beanstalk Project. All this is made possible through the generous support we receive from people like you.

Supporting care and wellbeing

People living with a long-term health condition or disability can feel less isolated if they have the opportunity to engage with others in their community through arts participation projects. In partnership with Alzheimer Scotland, we plan to offer monthly social dances and in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, we plan to host twice-monthly Dementia Cafés to bring people together.

Local people with Parkinson’s disease can participate in weekly dance classes through the Beacon’s Dance
for Parkinson’s initiative, run in partnership with Scottish Ballet, while children and young people with
autism and/or physical disabilities can participate in our aerial dance project Creatability, run in partnership with Barnardo’s Scotland.
