PHOENIX RISING:MK Creative & Social Opportunities for adults with support needs
We are a day service providing a range of creative and community based activities for
adults with disabilities and support needs.
Based at two excellent venues; York House in Stony Stratford and The Chrysalis Theatre at Camphill,
we offer a wide range of creative & social activities to suit everyone's needs and interests.
Our focus is on people's Abilities rather than their Disabilities.
Now Serving Milton Keynes, Bucks, Beds & Northants
Our programme includes: Art, Crafts, Photography, Performing Arts, Music & Out & About activities in the community, including swimming. We also run regular social opportunities including the popular monthly ‘Open Mic’ evenings at The Cock Hotel in Stony Stratford.
PHOENIX RISING:MK was established in 2015 by Directors Adrian Pinckard & Sarah Bament, both of whom have over 30 years' experience in teaching and educational management in both the mainstream and learning disability sectors. The staff team are also highly experienced and passionate about working with adults with support needs.
We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) therefore all profits are re-invested back into our service.
