Fallen Angels Dance Theatre is seeking an Engagement Support Worker.
Fallen Angels Dance Theatre (FADT) exists to support people in recovery from addiction to transform their lives and share the recovery journey with the wider public, through dance, performance and creativity. We provide a structured pathway to enhance recovery through creative activities that are a powerful engagement tool to promote the well-being and social inclusion of people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. We are passionate about creativity being something that we can all share. We place this at the heart of our work. We have developed a participant-led practice which means that participants in recovery are our collaborators and are involved in the creation of our professional dance performances at every stage, from R&D to final performance.
Where we work and the difference it makes
We have been instrumental in supporting 459 individuals through our participatory workshops. These are currently delivered in 3 communities across Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester. The workshops help to build participant confidence and self-esteem and reduce their social isolation on their pathway to recovery. Our workshops are designed to support and enhance addiction and mental health recovery programmes.Our pathway to recovery programme supports participants to sit at the heart of our creativity, developing dance skills in our workshop programme and for some, auditioning and performing in our professional programme. Through this journey our company shows how creative intervention can make a positive and lasting change to the lives of people in recovery from addiction.Our performances are central to our vision to use art to develop a better un-derstanding of addiction and recovery in the general public and provide in-spiration and opportunity to participants who may not otherwise realise their full potential.We are committed to developing and expanding our workshop programme to reach more people in recovery from addiction in the North West. We are building a reputation for this work and have developed strong partnerships. We work in community settings across the region to sustain a regular work-shop programme for people in recovery from addiction.
