What We Do



There are so many young people out there who have a talent so unique, that a sprinkling of creative support is all it needs to take it to the next level.

The Socialites are young people with additional support needs who live in Midlothian who struggle to find activity as unique as they are.

We design bespoke projects around ANY interest as a bridge to school, skill or social life.

Perhaps its about working with a very particular art form in a place that feels right.

Maybe it’s a specific computer programme or a specialist who works with similar processes or materials.

Sometimes we aren’t  even sure where we will end up, but we are always guided by the young person and their supports.

Whatever it takes…if there’s an interest then we will bring in relevant people to make it happen!   For example:


Dinosaur experts

Hot air balloonists




Opera singers

Day Dreamers

Tattoo artists

Basketball players




Make-up Artists


Musical performers

Street Dancers
