HeadStart Community Showcase

Following the HeadStart Conference, eight of Wolverhampton's fantastic voluntary sector and community organisations shared performances, drama, dance, film and testimonies from their HeadStart-funded projects. Many thanks and congratulations to all of the organisations who attended, and especially to the young people themselves. They did themselves, and the organisations they've worked with, totally proud. Thanks also to the parents, families and professionals who attended and enjoyed all that they had to share.

We've shared photos and videos from the showcase below.
