Support Us

Drama can be transformative for children and young people.

With your help, we can offer support to the most disadvantaged children and young people in our area, ensuring access to the highest quality performing arts education, and positively impacting their mental health and wellbeing.

Get Involved

01 Become a YATI Friend

If you can afford to give just £3 per month, it helps us to support families who genuinely cannot afford to give their children these opportunities.

02 Become a YATI Hero

Become a YATI Hero with a gift of £20 a month.

Your support could enable us to expand our outreach programmes, reaching more young people in the community where financial or social barriers prevent them from taking part in creative opportunities. These programmes help foster creativity, confidence, and communication skills in young people. 

03 Become a YATI Angel

Become a YATI Angel with a gift of £500 per annum.


Becoming an Angel is a rewarding way to support the work of Young Actors Theatre Islington. For each £500 donation, a young person can attend a 12-week term of classes for free.


You can become an Angel in your own name, family member, friend or in the name of a charity, foundation or business.

Why Support Us?

  • 89% of young people surveyed say that YATI has positively changed their lives

  • YATI offers free transformative drama classes to the most disadvantaged children

  • Nearly 30% of YATI families are in financial hardship

  • Classes build crucial life and employability skills such as communication, self-confidence, team-working and ambition

  • 200 YATI students gain paid employment in the performing arts industry each year.

For every £2000 we raise, 5 young people can attend weekly classes for a year at YATI.

YATI relies on the donations and support of generous individuals, companies, and trusts and foundations to deliver its work here at our home in Barnsbury and across the borough.


We have to raise over £70,000 every year to just to maintain our current offer. But we can do more...
