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.
Now operating from three excellent venues, York House in Stony Stratford, The Chrysalis Theatre at Camphill and new premises at Kiln Farm, we offer a wide range of creative & social activities to suit everyone's needs and interests. The focus is on people's Abilities rather than their Disabilities.
Our programme includes: Art, Crafts, Photography, Performing Arts, Music & Out & About activities in the community, including swimming.
We have a regular fortnightly radio show on Stony Radio on Tuesdays from 11.00 to 12.30. We also run regular social opportunities including the popular monthly ‘Open Mic’ evenings at The Cock Hotel in Stony Stratford.
We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) therefore all profits are re-invested back into our service.
