Geographical remit: 


Guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child,we recognise laughter and play as a stabilising force for children living in disaster zones. Working with professional artists and facilitators, our performances and workshops encourage children to reconnect with childish impulses and a sense of fun. It is our mission to alleviate their suffering by sharing joy and wonder when they need it most.


Clowns Without Borders UK was established in 2014 and we have delivered over 30 projects in 13 countries sharing laughter with over 55,000 children. With a team of 18 professional clowns we share joyful performances and workshops with children in Humanitarian Disasters.

We are also members of Clowns Without Borders International (CWBI), an umbrella organisations formed of 15 International Chapters with headquarters in Barcelona.CWBI is also a Consultative Member of UNESCO in recognition of our commitment too peace, tolerance and cultural diversity.
