Another year of conscious & thoughtful growth! Across the last year, we’ve supported more young people than ever before and co-created some brilliant work.
Cultural Development Manager Northumberland County Council:
“Mortal Fools continued growth and success is fabulous news for Northumberland and for children and young people everywhere. As well as co-creating powerful theatre productions and films of resonance and relevance, they are an excellent and inspirational training agency working across many diverse sectors.
This is testament to their clarity of vision and the effectiveness of their approach in supporting strong, dynamic individuals and the leaders of tomorrow.”
Across April 2022-April 2023, Mortal Fools meaningfully engaged with 1,316 young people – delivering programmes and projects for young people 48 weeks of the year, providing a safe creative outlet and supporting wellbeing.
Evidence from Mortal Fools young people’s programmes demonstrates that our projects play an increasingly significant part in our young people’s lives, mental health, and wellbeing. We’ve supported more young people with intersectional needs than ever before (now the majority of our beneficiaries) and developed specialist practice to support these complex needs and to achieve equity of opportunity.
We’ve featured in The Guardian, The Stage, North East Times, BDaily, North East Family Fun, High Life North and many other press publications and was on BBC Look North!
We had live audiences of 620 people and a digital audience of 5123, with our digital short form content reaching 375,593 people.
We’ve delivered 51 CONNECT training interventions and engaged 952 training participants from organisations across different sectors…
Here’s to another year of growth – thank you to our Mortal Fools community for making it all possible, and a big shout out to our young people, for motivating and challenging us every single day.
