Who we are
At C.L.O.W.N.S we aim to respond to the ever-changing needs of children living in Somerset West. Our focus is upon outreach, working directly within communities experiencing degrees of social isolation, and specifically children who are impacted by social mobility issues.
We do this by delivering community based activities that meaningfully support the learning and development of children, empowering them to both be and feel aspirational, while nurturing positive lifestyle habits and good physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Bringing children and families together, we create high-energy, safe learning environments, harnessing the creative and developmental potential of a range of disciplines, spanning ‘play sessions’, nature walks, arts and crafts, and more.
