Learn about community performances

N-Act in the community

1. To date we are proud to have built excellent relationships with numerous schools and colleges across the UK. We have expanded our reach to schools abroad, and our offer includes workshops and performances for businesses, charities and parents, concentrating on mental health awareness, personal safety and anxiety in children.

We deliver Parental Engagement evenings where our performance of Invisible leads into a guided discussion to help support your child towards positive mental health.

We are working with various charities and support groups and performed at the Hope for Life conference in Harrogate December 2023, run by The Jordan Legacy. Our work continues with supporting mental health and suicide prevention through performances across the UK.

Please get in touch if you would like to support us, or want to know more about what we do.

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
