  • run comedy courses improving literacy, confidence building and self expression.
  • improve accessibility and inclusivity for all to the arts.
  • support new and emerging artists.

If you’d like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you. We’re especially looking for people with the following skills:

  • Projects / programme management
  • Partnership / Relationship management
  • Fundraising
  • Social media / comms
  • Finance / Accounting

If you don’t have any of this experience, but you’ve got enthusiasm for the Trusts objectives, you’ll be equally welcome.
