Scottish Youth Theatre
When an opportunity arose to help Scottish Youth Theatre (SYT) after their funding was cut at the start of 2018, we jumped at the chance to help such a wonderful organisation. Thanks to the generous support offered by Alan and Lindsay, SYT’s National Ensemble can go on their UK tour this summer.
SYT is one of Scotland’s national youth performing arts companies and has been providing theatre arts experiences to young people since 1977. They give children the chance to do something worthwhile but also give disadvantaged children an escape from the stresses of home life.
We have long recognised the link between debt and mental health and we know that children are some of the biggest victims of debt. Our CEO, Alan, has been helping the Ensemble to prepare for their performances in their upcoming summer tour where they will be highlighting some of the mental health issues caused by debt. Richmond Oaks will also be joining up with SYT to write a play featuring the topic this year.
