The Caedmon Company

A Voice to the Voiceless

A company of artists that use the power of creative writing & performance to help improve the well-being and empowerment of children and young people



"The professionalism of the Caedmon Company team shone through not only in their interactions with the children but also in their seamless communication with us at the school. Their adeptness at building relationships and sharing skills made this a very high-quality project and an extremely worthwhile experience for all involved. Without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend this program and eagerly anticipate the prospect of collaborating with the company in the future."


Vanessa Lindsay, Deputy Head/Arts lead, Wrabness & Wix Primary School

“We were impressed with the professional support from Steve, Tom and his team, and the individual care for each pupil. Most of all, they felt they had been listened to and believed in, and they felt stronger from their experiences. As their class teacher, I feel I have got to know them better and understand their strengths and weaknesses more. They, in turn, are more able to ask me for help. I feel we have all been on a journey of discovery."

The Hero's Journey is such a wonderful project…what you are doing for the children is life-changing and was such a privilege to witness”.

I was very fortunate to be able to accompany our pupils, at Darlinghurst, on their end-of-year showcase in the heart of London’s West End…I sat and watched our fantastic young children perform their dance, acting, and recital pieces which brought me to tears. The way the Caedmon staff worked with our pupils was simply amazing. They inspired, nurtured, and supported them all to be the best they could be. They knew every child’s capabilities and made sure each child showed the best versions of themselves, even when nerves took over. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to any school, and just wish every pupil could take part.

“It was excellent. Steve was very responsive to the advice given to him regarding the young person’s needs and respected this. The whole process was thought through, and additional activities were also tailored to the young person’s interests”

"Our children will never forget the experiences they had. We always tell them to believe in the power of possibility and possess the character and emotional resilience to succeed. This experience gave them one of those magical moments! Their confidence, character and cultural capital has grown because of the opportunity, investment and care you have all shown."

"It has been such a fantastic journey for us all. So impressive to see the children come out of their shells and show the best versions of themselves. A wonderful opportunity that they will keep forever. Thank you to you and your team - such wonderful people – hearts of gold."
