Every adult and child has the ability to respond to the arts in many ways. Sometimes the arts provide a different perspective in which to respond to difficulties. BCAT allows people the chance to explore these difficulties, no matter what they may be, in a safe environment with a registered therapist who has been trained to offer support or encouragement, and, alongside community partners provide many arts based workshops to provide therapeutic intervention.

​BCAT uses the arts as a catalyst to support people and communities - helping them to grow and develop, and use the arts as a way to express and engage.
