The Birmingham Centre for Arts Therapies (BCAT) is a registered charity which was set up in
1993 to provide an accessible arts therapies, and more recently an arts in health service throughout
the Midlands. They assist children and adults who are experiencing mental health, physical,
behavioural or emotional issues with arts therapies, and also work closely with various community
partners across Birmingham to support the health and wellbeing of citizens using art, dance, drama,
music and play.
BUDS has chosen to support BCAT for a number of reasons. As dancers, we have an
understanding of the power that the arts can have for peoples lives and we were thrilled at the
opportunity to fund this further for people in our local community. We are super passionate about
raising awareness for this incredible cause and allowing more people to enjoy and benefit from the
joys of the arts. We are so excited for this partnership!
