Activate Arts


Activate is a registered Charity which was founded in 2005. We deliver personalised educational and vocational programmes for young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities in both Knowsley and Wirral. We have recently been added to the Section 41 Secretary of State approved providers list.

Our services include:

  • Study programmes for 19-24 year olds which focus on vocational skills/independent living skills and are funded through the Education Funding Agency

If you would like more information about our programmes please see our Admissions section.  

Important Notice!

We are fully aware that this is, and will be, a challenging time for us all; we are indeed in unchartered territory. Advice from the Government and Public Health England is changing on a daily basis so we are just letting you know the situation as it stands at present, and changes that we’ve made at Activate. We will keep all parents fully updated of changes via either telephone calls, letters or the Activate Facebook page.  

As of Friday 27th March 2020:
  • Easter holidays have been brought forward by a week. All students & social care members will finish on Friday 27th March 2020.
  • Activate will re-open for all students & social care members w/c Monday 20th April 2020.

This is to ensure that the college can undergo a deep clean and that resources are in place for learners to safely return. If there are any changes to the return date, we will endeavour to update you at the earliest opportunity.
Kind regards Jane Young CEO
