Access to the premises:

Our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of young people.  Unfortunately there may be times when our facilities and capacity can’t adequately meet their needs. We are always looking to review and improve upon this.

We are in the process of moving to new premises.  When we are settled in our new building, we will provide a full access guide.  This will include information about visiting and the facilities that we can provide.  In the meantime, please have a look at some creative writing activities you can do online here.

If you would like any further information or have any questions, we would love to hear from you. You can contact the access officer at info@grimmandco.co.uk or by calling 01709 829750.

We are committed to including all young people in all our workshops wherever possible. Please do get in touch if you think a young person hoping to attend a workshop would need anything specific from us that isn’t covered below.  We will always try as hard as possible to address any barriers you might face if you are thinking of visiting us.
