We are an inclusive arts company where artistic excellence goes hand in hand with learning and personal growth.
Who We Are
For over thirty years we’ve been a force for change and artistic excellence in the world of Disability Arts.
With locations across Surrey, we make theatre, dance, film, music and visual art that challenges perceptions and defies expectations.
What We Do
Our person-centred, creative process and the friendly, communal Freewheelers atmosphere creates an environment where our members’ confidence, independence, social skills and self expression can thrive.
Every week is packed with creative workshops where members come together to share their creative talents, learn new skills and work towards a new performance, film or piece of art.
Freewheelers is a home from home for many of our members (some of whom have been with us for almost three decades!)
A day with the Freewheelers is a chance to meet friends, chat, laugh, have fun and be yourself.
What Our Members Love
The chance to develop artistic skills such as acting, dance, singing, film-making, and theatre production
● Improving their physical fitness and co-ordination through dance and movement
● Learning how to work as part of a team
● Developing social skills and making friends
● Gaining independence and confidence
Freewheelers is delighted to have been presented The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK.
Created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation, this is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise the outstanding work that they undertake in their communities.
In 2017 the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Mr Michael More-Molyneux, presented Freewheelers with our award; we were one of 187 charities, social enterprises, and voluntary groups to receive the award during that year.
