community centres, focuses on using drama 
as a tool for building confidence and social skills. Spencer Taylor, from Sheffield Wednesday, said: “The Shout programme is all about giving young people the training and resources they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.” Ruth Carney-Nash, also pictured, added: “Sheffield Wednesday has an incredible legacy and we are very excited to be working together.”
