Support Cuckoo

As you can see, Cuckoo does many many exciting things. To do these things we rely on our lovely funders, who give us the money to maintain our core programme and allow us to keep all of our work free for the young people who take part.

However, we always want reach more young people and do more exciting, innovative work. To do this we have launched a Cuckoo Campaign to raise money to enable us to keep helping young people to make brilliant work and to keep it free and accessible to all.

We develop skills and nurture talent, and also encourage those young people who don’t think of themselves as writers to get involved and have a go. We create environments where young writers can make friends, develop their confidence, try out new things (songwriting, drama, zine-making etc.) and have fun.

What your donation can help us buy: 

£10 will buy us a bunch of beautiful leaflets to help us spread the word about our work
£25 will buy us materials to make a zine with
£50 will buy us an inspirational group leader for a 2-hour writing group session
£150 will enable us to take a professional writer into a school for half a day
£500 will enable us run a pilot programme in a community location, and take writing to young people who wouldn’t usually have access to arts and culture
