The Orpheus Centre Trust
As Sir Richard Stilgoe, founder and trustee says: "I started the Orpheus Centre in 1998 because of a long-held belief that young disabled people – just like their non-disabled peers - gain confidence by performing in public and being applauded. We don’t train young disabled people to be professional performers – we are a specialist college teaching them the skills they need to live independently. What makes us different is that we use the performing arts to give our students the self-belief to use those skills when they leave us. The last twenty years have proved that this works!"
