Headway Arts provides high quality, creative, arts participation opportunities for communities in Northumberland and beyond, with particular expertise in engaging and including disadvantaged people, specifically but not exclusively those who are learning disabled.

Founded in 1995, Headway Arts is an independent arts organisation and registered charity based in Blyth, Northumberland. It focuses on participatory arts, providing opportunities for people to gain access to the arts — and aims to engage people who are socially excluded, with a focus on working with young people and adults with learning disabilities.
