AT The Bus Request (SAC highly reccommended)

Organisation Description

AT The Bus provide school-based art as therapy to children and young people aged 5 – 18 with complex social and emotional needs who are struggling with their mental health. Children attend weekly small group sessions on our converted double decker bus or specialist studios, for a minimum of a school term. We build resilience and wellbeing through creativity. The work is transformative and changes lives, helping children to re-engage with their education and build resilience and confidence for the future. We support 800 children a year and have ambitious plans to build this to 2000 in three years. “Because of AT The Bus, I now come to school” student, 2023
