Learn about community performances

N-Act in the community

To date we are proud to have built excellent relationships with numerous schools and colleges in London and Essex. As part of our vision for the future we plan to expand this to the wider community offering workshops and performances to businesses, charities and parents, concentrating on mental health awareness, personal safety and anxiety in children. 

Additionally, our aim is to promote mental health training for professionals in the workplace and corporate environments by supporting the role of HR departments and business owners, equipping them with knowledge and skills to enable them to offer effective education and support to their employees.

COMMUNITY partners 

It is only possible to continue to undertake our work due to the incredible support from a number of community partners. These include:

YMCA Southend • Southend Police • Colchester Arts Centre • Martello Towers, Tendring • Stage House UK • SAVS

As a not-for-profit enterprise, we are always looking to develop new opportunities for support both financial and otherwise, and welcome enquiries from local businesses. It is a very rewarding way for a company to give something back to the local community and support our work while growing their brand locally.

If this is something that you would like to know more about please feel free to make an initial, no obligation, enquiry. We would love to speak with you and would welcome the opportunity to invite you to a performance to see what we do.

If you run an event that you would like us to attend please get in touch
