More Stuff Life This Please! was a 2-year programme, funded by Culture Bridge North East and Stockton Borough Council, delivered in partnership by ARC Stockton (lead partner), Stockton Borough Council and Blue Cabin.

More Stuff Like This Please! was focused on care experienced children and the adults and organisations in their lives.

The programme was named More Stuff Like This Please! following a creative consultation session with care experienced children and young people where they were asked what creative activities they wanted to do in the future.

Five strands of work were:

  • Activity – opportunities for care experienced children and young people to participate in creative experiences

  • Training – for the adults in the lives of care experienced children and young people

  • Communications – ways to disseminate information and recruit children and young people to the programme

  • Arts Award – opportunities for care experienced children and young people to achieve accreditation

  • Evaluation – to understand and learn from the work, and share findings
