Arts Inclusion

Social Fabric are commited to creating workshop experiences for all to access.

We have a long history of working with learning providers to deliver participatory art experiences to children with learning disabilities and complex needs.

We work in partnership with organizations, schools and pupil referral units on art intervention programmes to support children from disadvantage circumstances who find themselves in crisis or are in contact with the youth justice system or Not In Education, Employment or Training (NEET).

Our experience and sensitivity of working with marginalised and ‘at risk’ groups has been described as ‘second to none’. The groups that we have had the privilege of working with include; young people excluded from mainstream education settings, young offenders, children with complex and profound disabilities, children who are looked after and children who are unaccompanied minors.


  • Social Fabric are skilled at designing and pitching activities and projects at exactly the right level
  • Social Fabric ensure a high quality artistic experience and meaningful outcome for all the young people we work with.
“Sarah worked at both our Strong Voices residential retreats with vulnerable and disadvantaged young Londoners. She engaged them in textile printing – creating an array of T-shirts and banners that were valued by the young people, their youth centres and our wider programme. The nature inspired banner created at our first residential retreat is now displayed at Hidleap Warren, whilst smaller banners take pride of place at four different youth centres across London. The second banner was created when she worked with us as an Artist in Residence; she worked with the young people to draw out what they appreciate about arts and culture and inspired them to create a stunning piece of art work. We have shared images of the banner at national conferences and on our website as it perfectly captures the nature of our work with young people who are traditionally excluded from arts and culture. Working with Sarah is always a joy for us and the young people involved – she is professional, engaging, creative and inspiring!”
