Work with us

We welcome partnership working and value the partners we have. Shared aims and collective endeavour within the sectors of arts, mental health and social care mean that we necessarily prioritise partnership working. We will all get a lot more done by working together, recognising, respecting (but also challenging at times) expertise and what we each bring to the task in hand.

If you are interested in working in partnership please complete the form at the bottom of this page.

NHS Kirklees CCG funds our Out of the Blue project. The CCG serves a population of around 437,000. They are a membership organisation made up of 64 GP practices. They are led by local GPs and it is their role to commission (plan and buy) the majority of hospital and community health services for the local population.
Arts Council England are the national development agency for creativity and culture. They invest public money from Government and The National Lottery to help support the sector and to deliver this vision.
Kirklees Council is the local authority providing most local government services for the borough of Kirklees in West Yorkshire, England.
The National Lottery Community Fund gives grants to organisations in the UK to help improve their communities.
The feedback from the women and staff was incredible. They reported that “it was the best purposeful session we have ever had.”
OPDP project
Great engagement in all sessions with people contributing lyrics, singing along, and providing good feedback.
Overgate Hospice
The staff team are going to be fighting to decide who wants to support it because we will all want to be in there.

We aim for hoot to be a supportive and nurturing workplace where you can feel able to explore and grow your professional practice. 

With IDE(A) at the heart of our thinking we recognise that ethnic minority communities are insufficiently represented across both the cultural sector [6] and the charity sector [7] We commit to ensuring our Board, employees, freelance contractors, membership and stakeholder groups are representative in terms of ethnicity, as well as Disability, socioeconomic background, sexuality, age and all recognised protected characteristics. We commit to amplifying Black voices and the voices of ethnic minority communities through our website, bulletin and social media. 



Provide sessions

Please note: hoot is not currently available to host activities by external organisations pending updates on the Stage 4 unlock on June 21.

Run a project with us

If you are someone with lived experience, an artist, academic, mental health worker or carer and want to suggest a project or highlight a need for hoot to work with you on, please get in touch. We will be happy to talk through the idea with you and if we can find a way to make it happen together then we will.
