National Youth Theatre has been shortlisted for Community Project of the Year for the Creating Places Awards 2018 for running the Playing Up schools tour, with funding from the L&Q Foundation.
The tour used interactive theatre to get young Londoners talking about homelessness. It also gave young actors from marginalised communities life-changing access to an HND Level 3 with experience to count towards it and specialist academic support.
The 2018 Playing Up Schools Tour saw 'Snakes and Ladders' by Rebecca Manley head to schools across Newham, Lewisham and Waltham Forest.
