Interakt Community Charity - Dramatised storytelling

Last updated: 27/02/2024

Did anyone hear the story about…

Dramatised storytelling is an opportunity for our participants to develop original stories or create a piece of work based on a classic favourite.

The group devises and develops a script with staff, as well as researching and creating costumes, making props, building scenery and performing a different story each year.  Participants benefit from the imagination and self-expression that runs through every session, building confidence as they share stories and ideas in a safe and supportive environment. There are also opportunities to learn about life backstage at the theatre, with sessions on lighting, set design and stage management.

We offer a holistic approach to meet the needs of each individual regardless of their ability; we provide exciting opportunities, friendships, fun, creativity, confidence, and an increased sense of empowerment.

We have a wide variety of creative and life skills classes on offer. Our team would love to welcome you to join in the fun. Visit our website at  to find out more or contact us at

Age Range Notes

Groups are made up of individuals with learning and physical disabilities, some with hearing and visual challenges, we have the expertise to work with older people and those with mental health issues, but we also have volunteers and individuals from mainstream working with us as well.

Referral Details

Interakt does not require a referral as our sessions are for everyone and if an individual has very complex needs then with support from WBC Adult Social Care a specific care plan will be commissioned. 


Other notes

For those transitioning from College to Adult Social Care contact WBC Adult Social Care and request a list from the transitioning team which will have details of Day Providers, their activities, sessions, days and times.  Remember that your provision is your choice therefor make time to research and book a free taster session with those providers which you want to explore further.  For those already in the Adult Social Care sector who require another service from a different provider to what they already have, contact Adult Social Care and ask to speak to your social worker or care manager with your query or request.  The most important thing is for each individual to access a service that is of their own choice that each individual is informed of a variety of provisions in order to make an informed choice which works best for them.
