Daisi designs creative projects with and for groups of more vulnerable young people, including children in care, care leavers, vulnerably housed young people, those in targeted families, young people who are rurally isolated or economically challenged, disabled young people, and those with special educational needs. Taking part in high-quality creative activities helps these young people gain transferable skills, as well as develop self confidence and connect to their communities.
