Space2Create is a registered charity No. 1159664
Space2Create was started in 2012 after a Kendal based mental health charity, Workbase, closed due to financial cuts. Some of the volunteers, staff and trustees felt that a large number of people would be left isolated because of this and so formed Space2Create based around creative activity.
Many of the people involved in running S2C have themselves recovered from or are recovering from serious mental or physical health problems. They have backgrounds in the arts, education and training, mental health and social services.
One thing that we all have in common is a passion for being creative and an awareness of how creative activity has helped them and others, to recover, grow and move forward in their lives.
Space2Create is growing all the time, with a strong belief in participant involvement.
