Trusthouse are supporting Soft Touch Arts in their refurbishment of a special creative space for young people with physical disabilities, and profound and multiple learning difficulties.  The space will use Soundbeam technology which enables people with disabilities to make their own performances, films, music and art by triggering creative effects through movement.  It will enable young people with disabilities to be involved in organising events and perform alongside able-bodied young people and to collaborate constructively with them.  400 young people with disabilities are anticipated to be involved in the first year.
