ActionSpace’s young people’s projects provide regular opportunities for young people with learning disabilities to explore their creativity and discover new skills. They also give them the chance to meet like-minded young people and to create strong support networks, which is particularly important during the transition from school to adult life. The visual arts can provide a lifeline for these young people by helping them to develop a method of self-expression, which can reduce their frustration and anger.  Exhibiting artwork in local venues provides them with a way of participating in their community and gives them valuable positive acknowledgement.
