We firmly believe in the benefits of being creative as part of a group. For anyone who has found themselves isolated or excluded while experiencing long term physical or mental health conditions, the road to recovery is a daunting prospect.
We provide creative opportunities which are supportive, accessible and unthreatening. All our sessions have a very positive atmosphere and the participants are mutually supportive. Again and again we see service users improve their confidence, self respect and wellbeing as they move towards recovery and back to being part of their community.
We support individuals to move forward at a pace suitable for them, looking to help them become more involved and eventually take on volunteer roles, education opportunities or look to return to employment.
As part of this, as well as sessions in our own unit, we link to local organisations, community events and festivals to provide opportunities for our service users.
