Creative Health Awareness Training

Established in 1986, The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company is run by and for people with learning disabilities. Core Members research, explore and develop new ways of creating and using theatre and the arts to develop their ideas, plan and take control of their futures and help change attitudes.

The company offers a wide range of creative training programmes including Creative Health Awareness Training (CHAT).

The CHAT programme has been developed specifically for the health sector, using real life stories to example areas of the NHS system that people with learning disabilities find inaccessible.

During training, participants experience a 20 minute theatre piece and work with the actors to improve the circumstances of the scene. Together we identify best practice when working with people with learning disabilities.
