Funky Llama

Funky Llama is a platform for adults with different abilities* to actively participate in the creation and delivery of a programme of activities and professional, inclusive arts events to develop well-being, promote multiple social networking opportunities, reduce isolation and enhance life skills.

*Differently-abled is an inclusive term used by our Driving Force steering group. This term may include people who identify as learning disabled, deaf, disabled or neurodiverse.

Funky Llama has made me feel a lot more confident to show off my many skills and feel proud. I’ve done things I never ever thought I’d do in my life.
