COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR MULTI-STRAND –
Dramatic Action is an amateur drama/craft group founded by Bolton at Home Housing Association. The group was set up in 2010 to engage with those who have difficulty expressing themselves and are the least heard within the community. Dramatic Action gives vulnerable adults with multiple issues an opportunity to express themselves in a fun and innovative way by producing and performing pieces of drama to explore hard hitting, contemporary themes relevant to people’s experiences such as teen pregnancy, homelessness, anti-social behaviour and relationship breakdown/domestic violence. The group is very diverse involving those who have learning disabilities, offending behaviour, mental health issues, substance misuse, homelessness, alcohol abuse and asylum seekers. Dramatic Action has also created wonderful masterpieces of art work which has helped members become more creative and take ownership of their ideas.
