Empowering children and young people through creative and inclusive learning

 ‘Cause You Can is an award-winning charity using live performance, performing arts and filmmaking as educational tools, to raise young people’s confidence, improve their wellbeing and develop leadership.

We want all the chil­dren and young peo­ple who live in London’s deprived areas to ben­e­fit from equal life chances and oppor­tu­ni­ties. To help achieve this, we:

Boost con­fi­dence and self-belief, by unlock­ing cre­ativ­i­ty, lead­er­ship and life skills
Improve emo­tion­al well­be­ing, by fos­ter­ing char­ac­ter build­ing and self-aware­ness
Increase pos­i­tive rela­tion­ships through our val­ues-based edu­ca­tion­al frame­work

Work with schools to pre­vent and tack­le men­tal health and behav­iour­al issues
Raise skills and aca­d­e­m­ic attain­ment, by sup­port­ing pupils who under­achieve
Facil­i­tate inclu­sion and par­tic­i­pa­tion, by aid­ing diverse com­mu­ni­ties’ cohe­sion

WATCH HERE the amazing work that we do in Primary schools.

We deliv­er fun and inclu­sive cours­es for chil­dren and young peo­ple in London’s most deprived areas. Our inter­ven­tions devel­op their life skills and resilience, help­ing them to grow stronger, hap­pi­er, and with greater hopes for their future.

All cours­es cul­mi­nates in a film-screen­ing or live per­for­mance co-pro­duced, deliv­ered and led by the stu­dents. The open events bring the com­mu­ni­ty togeth­er. They empow­er the young peo­ple who come to realise that they too can suc­ceed, make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion, and achieve what they want by work­ing as a team.

We work with schools, academies, local libraries and cinemas.

Class teach­ers of the chil­dren involved com­ment­ed on the pos­i­tive out­comes. The inter­ac­tive meth­ods employed by ‘Cause you Can strong­ly encour­aged the chil­dren to par­tic­i­pate, thus improv­ing con­fi­dence, knowl­edge of oth­ers, social and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.” Teacher, Her­bert Mor­ri­son Pri­ma­ry School
