Do you DARE?

What is Project DARE?

At Project DARE! we empower and support people who may have experienced or be experiencing low self-confidence and body image issues. We help participants by harnessing personal change, taking control of both their physical and mental health through a celebration of the human body. The deliciously Daring drama and creative based activities are specifically designed to be challenging yet accessible for all.

Who is it for?

  • People who are struggling with self-esteem, body confidence or confidence issues
  • The creative, primarily drama based workshops are specifically designed to be accessible for all adults, all shapes and sizes and all fitness levels (must be 16 years +)*
  • They are particularly effective for people who feel they are at a turning point in their recovery and would like to be in an environment where they can learn self-compassion, to nurture & explore their physical and mental health & to fall in love with their body.

*Project DARE! also run separate sessions for teenagers – dubbed the DARE DEVILS – which have been highly acclaimed in schools and girl-guiding and youth settings across South London.

I am a health professional, how can I find out more?

Project DARE! is a not-for-profit social enterprise. It has been designed BY service users, FOR service users. We work with commissioners within the mental health, public health and education sectors to support people as an early intervention and preventative measure to low confidence, low self-esteem and body image issues. We do this to create community value – making a positive social impact is our central purpose.

Our clients are able to use their personal budgets or other types of funding to pay for their place on the course. We accept people referred by GP’s, by charities and also self-referring individuals who are not receiving support from their local health authorities.
