Purple Patch Arts is a not-for-profit social enterprise

Purple Patch exist to make things better for people with learning disabilities. We are seeking a world

where everyone has equal value and opportunity and we provide education to try and make this happen. We work across the Yorkshire region offering learning programmes to people with learning disabilities and professionals that support them. All of our programmes use creative, interactive and multi-sensory teaching methods, which we call 'The Purple Patch Approach.'


"The go-to specialists for innovative, inclusive, life changing education."



"My independent evaluation has demonstrated that pupils taking part in Purple Patch sessions develop new skills and knowledge.”


- Dr Katherine Runswick-Cole, Author and SEND Specialist, Manchester Metropolitan University
