Why Spectrum Community Arts Ltd
Spectrum Community Arts Ltd
Hello and welcome to the official SNAP Sponsorship profile of Spectrum Community Arts.
We're delighted to announce that we’ve now partnered with SNAP Sponsorship and we’re looking for sponsors who are excited about affiliating themselves with an exceedingly popular, not-for-profit organisation providing performing arts workshops for people with disabilities and additional needs in Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes.
We strive to craft a partnership with our sponsors that meets their specific objectives, whether that be community gifting, social responsibility (CSR), direct sales or brand building.
We’ll work with you to develop a partnership which meets both your objectives and adds value to our members — supporting our organisation’s ongoing work in the community to remove barriers and make the performing arts enjoyable, accessible and sustainable for all.
Whatever your motivation, find out more below. Thank you for visiting our profile.

Make a difference in our community
We have 84 participants who attend our weekly sessions and a community of over 200 disabled people who access our bespoke and holiday club workshops. These sessions directly benefit the participants:
“Spectrum classes have brought about a change in [him] that many other professionals we work with haven't been able to achieve. Noah had been out of school for more than two years, he would not talk due to anxiety, he wasn't looking forward to anything and had felt quite isolated. Spectrum has helped immensely. [He] recorded a spoken video to express how much spectrum has helped him, he is always rushing to get to the next class or help in any way he can and he has made friendships he otherwise would not have had.”
“After dancing at Spectrum for 6 months, Lochlainn no longer needs to see a physio therapist!”
We also couldn't do what we do without our AMAZING team of volunteers who give up their time to support the participants to engage in the sessions! Many volunteers have felt that Spectrum has helped boost their own confidence, maintain their own fitness levels and some have even gone on to pursue a career in the SEND world!
"As well as being emotionally rewarding, volunteering at Spectrum has helped me to blossom as a person, improving my confidence, communication and empathy, skills that I know will be important when building a future career and for life as a whole."
“Spectrum is an asset to the wider community... it provides a safe space where everyone feels valued and understood and can express themselves in whatever way they wish. I think that Spectrum is fabulous and I feel very lucky to be part of such as lovely community!”
We’d love for you to get involved and see the positive impact Spectrum Community Arts has on our local area.
Remove economic barriers making community arts affordable, accessible and inclusive for all
Sponsorship of a community organisation like ours delivers a much higher return on investment than traditional advertising. This is because sponsorship allows your business to become directly involved in activities that are highly valued by local consumers.
Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support and contribute to the local community. With eight out of ten consumers preferring to believe in what a company does rather than what it says, it’s easy to see why many businesses are choosing to sponsor community clubs like ours as a way of maximising their marketing return.
By directly supporting us, you’re helping to remove economic barriers — making our classes accessible, affordable and inclusive for all.

Who Are We?
Spectrum Community Arts Ltd. is a not-for-profit organisation providing performing arts workshops for people with disabilities and additional needs. Spectrum was founded in January 2017 by Jade and now she delivers weekly out of school clubs and bespoke workshop programmes for Special Schools, SEND departments within mainstream schools, charities, adult day services and other organisations.
Here at Spectrum Community Arts our aim is to enable participants to develop their self-esteem and self-expression in a safe, encouraging environment. We strongly believe that the performing arts are a fun and exciting way to do this and a perfect platform to nurture and develop individual skills and abilities.
We have a timetable of 6 different weekly 'out-of-school' clubs providing a safe space for our participants to stay active, make friends and have fun!
Jade Our Founder
Jade has planned and facilitated an extensive range of performing arts workshops across the UK and abroad for all age groups and abilities since 2011. After graduating with a 1st class degree in Drama & Performance and English Language & Linguistics, she went on to perform and create multi-sensory theatre productions and understudied for Frozen Light Theatre in 2017. She is passionate about using her love of the performing arts to help develop the self-esteem, self-expression and social skills of her participants.
Jade founded Spectrum CA in 2017, developed it into a not-for-profit company in 2019 and currently is the lead facilitator and director.
Why are we looking for sponsors?
During the pandemic we lost income from our classes and fundraising opportunities during the 18 months of lockdowns and restrictions. Many of our participants struggled with isolation, a lack of opportunities to socialise and keep active and saw an increase in their anxiety. We now have an abundance of participants wanting to reap the benefits of our sessions and not enough classes to offer them all. However, with our overhead costs rising and a depletion in funds from the lack of fundraising during Covid, we’re looking for sponsors to support our main project.
We want to continue our 6 timetabled weekly ‘out-of-school’ clubs. Offering a space for everyone to be themselves, without judgement. We also want to use these next two terms to develop Spectrum from the inside, creating a sustainable organisation and the possibility to open more clubs in the future!
History of Spectrum Community Arts
Founder Jade, benefitted from the performing arts herself. She was painfully shy as a child until she joined a performing arts club, where she made true friends, grew in confidence and felt like she could be herself.
Jade went on to study Drama and English Language at University where she volunteered for a performing arts club for adults with learning disabilities. There she witnessed first-hand how the performing arts were benefitting the performers and her passion was born.
A few years after graduating and gaining experience with various different companies and organisations — Spectrum was born! It exists to provide a safe space for people who can't access the mainstream, neurotypical groups to explore the performing arts and help develop self-esteem, self-expression and confidence!
We pride ourselves on creating a safe space where people can be themselves without fear of judgement!
In the near future we'd like to develop our offerings for those with complex and profound disabilities and additional needs. Creating immersive and sensory performing arts workshops to go into special schools and more events during the school holidays for those with profound and multiple disabilities.
We'd also like to become a registered charity. Our longer-term, bigger aspiration is to have our own fully accessible arts building — complete with a dance studio, black box studio, theatre space, sensory rooms, recording studio and arts rooms. That's the big pipeline dream!
Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our organisation on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
