Behind The Big Blue Doors – About Us

About us

Orpheus believes that disabled people should have the same opportunities as their non-disabled peers. We aim to equip young disabled people with the skills and confidence they need in order to live independent and fulfilling lives.
Our vision is of an inclusive world where young people with disabilities, a passion for the performing arts and a desire to live and work independently can achieve their aspirations.
We use the performing arts to empower young adults with disabilities by developing communication, social interaction and other independence skills.
