ACE Knights Event Management is a new social enterprise who proudly create the social scene for people with disabilities in Thurrock and throughout Essex. Using theatre based therapies to help with confidence, encourage social interaction and to nurture creativity within our members.
In May 2015 Leah Knight started The ACE Group (TAG) in Thurrock. A non-profit organisation creating the social scene for disabled adults 19yrs+ All run by a dedicated team of Leah's friends who volunteer. In the photo above is Thomas, Thomas is 27 years old now, one of The ACE Group 19yrs+ members. In 2015, when Thomas had transitioned between 'children's services' to 'adults services', there wasn't any local activities that were either stimulating or age appropriate. Tom likes to listen to music, watch people having fun, & make people jump! Tom likes to socialise and choose his own events to attend. Tom is the younger brother of Leah Knight and also her reason for launching this social enterprise. In the hope that TAG members across all age groups have a social calendar they deserve.
