REACH is a Goofus project to bring our work into care homes, hospitals, hospices, children’s mental health units and other care settings.

We want to explore non verbal puppetry and performance, the importance of the silence between words and mainly using no words at all.

We want to explore creating experiences using just soundtrack and image to find moments of connection , to support person centred care and train care workers to use puppetry as a long term intervention to connect with residents.

We want to create a model of engagement that is adaptable in many different health care settings.

REACH will bring together researchers, healthcare professionals and artists.
