Sound Symphony by Ellie Griffiths image Brian Hartley

Oily Cart reimagines theatre for young audiences to make it more inclusive, creating sensory theatre that can be enjoyed by children who are very young and those who are labelled as having complex needs including those with profound and multiple disabilities, with an autistic spectrum condition, and those who are deafblind and multi-sensory impaired.

With a number of multi-year bids coming to an end, in 2021 Oily Cart invited Achates to support its fundraising through the development of compelling, strategic bids to existing and new funders through a combination of funder briefing notes and bid writing services as well as coaching and bid development support for Oily Cart’s team.
