Seeds for Growth

Where We Work

In the UK, our main areas of work are in East London and Cambridge. Through our participation in EU funded projects, we’ve worked in many countries, including Italy, Germany, Norway and Spain.

Can We Help You?

The Seeds for Growth team can create engaging progression routes to overcome barriers to active participation in the worlds of work, culture and citizenship using a combination of arts, technology and business skills.

Groups We Work With

We’ve developed and managed projects for schoolchildren, young people at risk, serving and ex-prisoners, people experiencing homelessness, people with physical and mental health problems, social inclusion practitioners and many more.

a little bit about us..


Seeds for Growth was launched in 2006 as a registered charity to advance the quality of life for people from disadvantaged communities, mainly in the East End of London, by addressing their cultural, social, economic and health issues.

After merging with Escape Artists in 2012 – a charity focused on devising arts and technology education programmes – Seeds for Growth expanded its remit to working on projects in the Criminal Justice Sector throughout the EU.

The founder director of Escape Artists, Matthew Taylor, is now managing and delivering our portfolio of Cambridge based projects.


More than 10 Years of EU Project Experience

Seeds for Growth has worked with a wide variety of partners in the UK and across the EU to create progression routes into work, health and well-being.

Talk to us today to see if we can work together to create a truly inspiring progression route – using the arts, technology and business training – that will really make a difference to your client group.
