Creative Opportunities

We provide a range of creative opportunities, co-produced by young people.

Embedded in our approach to mentoring, these opportunities help young people have their voices heard, improve their confidence, and learn creative skills. Working with local clients on projects that give young people an opportunity to express themselves, have their voice heard and help affect change in the local community.

Our work

Examples of recent projects.

Our different channels:

Starting Point Studio

A creative media work experience project for young people 16+ not in education, employment, or training. Working on real-life briefs, using various aspects of video, graphic design and branding.

Alternative Provision

Following conversations with local schools, it became clear that Reading needed more varied and affordable Alternative Provision options for schools to access. We have had over 50 young people access Starting Point Alternative Provision in our first two years of this provision.

Young Voices

Working alongside local partners, we are involved in Young Voices projects – empowering young people to have their opinions heard and help shape strategy in Reading.
