Heroes Project move to Trafford
A multi-award winning specialist learning disability arts charity is moving to Trafford and bringing its record company, radio station and bespoke entertainment agency with it.
The Heroes Project, whose initiatives also include the nationally recognised Frogtastic Club Nights, LDOK Radio, Heroes Project Records and the Autistic Superstars Entertainment Agency has agreed a move to Gorse Hill Studios in Stretford.
The organisation has been running for seventeen years and specialise in the provision of opportunities that encourage the involvement and recognition of people affected by disability, with specific emphasis placed on the provision of performing arts and social development activities for adults with a learning disability.
Heroes Project initiatives attract in the region of 2000 people annually via a range of activities that continue to remain popular amongst members of the Learning Disabled, Autistic and Mental health communities.
Founder and Principle Director Terry Snowden MBE said: “This move is a straight forward matter of relocation for The Heroes Project because the property we currently occupy in Salford is being sold.
We learned that Gorse Hill Studios, (which has recently been placed under the management of the local community), was looking to house community based projects to support its sustainability plan.
So with the help and support of Trafford Council, we have been able to make this happen”. “It’s great to be able to support Gorse Hill Studios in their development while continuing to provide our exciting initiatives from a new home”.
“I had the pleasure of growing up in Gorse Hill and to be able to bring The Heroes Project to Trafford in the same building where I went to school feels a bit strange, but really cool – We shall have to organise a bit of a ribbon cutting ceremony.”
