Mind the Gap is England's largest learning-disabled theatre company that creates work for UK and international audiences.

Our vision is to work in an arts sector where there is equal opportunity for performers with learning disabilities: a world where performers are trained, respected and employed equally, and feature everyday on our stages and screens.

We work in partnership with learning-disabled artists to deliver a bold, cutting edge and world class artistic programme that impacts locally, nationally and internationally. Work that excites, surprises and challenges audiences.

Our aim is to make great theatre that makes audienceds think differently. By 'theatre' we don't just mean shows that you can see in arts and theatre venues, but also performances and events in different spaces and places.

By donating to Mind the Gap, or becoming a friend, you can help us to:

* Make great theatre. Our productions are performed by disabled people, and are for everyone to enjoy, and they do!

* In 2008 we moved into our brand new home, Mind the Gap Studios. We now have state of the art and fully accessible rehearsal, workshop and meeting spaces designed for developing new work, being creative, and learning. And we like to share it too!

* Run Outreach theatre workshops are for young people with learning disabilities who want to try acting and learn drama skills (and have a lot of fun!)

* Provide beginner actor training courses for people to get a qualification while they learn a range of theatre skills, from Front of House, through Acting, to Design

* Help other organisations achieve equal opportunities for learning-disabled people. We offer training, workshops and consultancy.
