Is your child living with a complex medical condition? We know it can be lonely. That’s why we want to help you discover life ‘beyond the diagnosis’ and give your child the chance to shine. 

Our summer art camps are open to children and young people with underlying or complex medical conditions aged 6-12 years. Recommended by hospitals across the country, you can find us at your local outpatient clinic, sign up to a community workshop, or join us remotely at home.
