The Outside Edge Theatre company
Outside Edge is the only professional theatre company in the UK working with adults, young people, and children affected by drug and alcohol addiction. The company uses theatre and drama to give people affected by these problems a voice; thus enabling them to reach and recognise their potential, find an identity, and build skills and confidence. Since its founding in 1999 Outside Edge has worked with over 10,000 people. It has provided over 40 drama interventions throughout London and the UK, as well providing hundreds of hours of paid employment for people who have experience of substance misuse recovery.
"I am a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. Theatre saved my life. I started Outside Edge to in the hope that other lives could be saved through theatre too." Artistic Director Phil Fox

Macmillian Cancer Support
Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. One in three of us will get cancer. We are all affected by cancer. We can all help. We are Macmillan.
As treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. This means they need more than medical help, they also need practical, emotional and financial support.
We are a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It's not only patients who live with cancer, so we also help carers, families and communities. We guide people through the system, supporting them every step of the way. We fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres. But we give so much more than medical help.
People need practical support at home, so we provide anything from some precious time off for a carer, to a lift to hospital. People need emotional support, so we listen, advise and share information though our CancerLine, website, support groups and trained professionals. People need financial help to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, so we give benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs. Together we listen, we learn, we act to help people live with cancer.
