“Orpheus is an independent specialist college in Surrey that increases the confidence and skills of young disabled adults through the performing arts. We believe that every young disabled person should have the same opportunities as their non-disabled peers.
Our students are between the ages of 18 and 25 and have learning and/or physical impairments. They usually stay at Orpheus for three years. We have over 25 residential students and around 20 day students learning practical skills such as budgeting and computer literacy alongside song-writing and performing.
Since 1998 Orpheus has transformed the lives of hundreds of young people and their families. Our students have performed at venues all over the country including the Paralympics, Buckingham Palace and Glastonbury. Our goal is to give young disabled people the skills and opportunities they need so that they can lead fulfilling and independent lives”
