Thrive in a supportive and encouraging environment that will help you enjoy the benefits of creative, social activities!
Why should I take part?
Our activities can help you by:
- Making you feel safe, supported and respected
- Offering life-affirming experiences to help you to build happy memories
- Building your confidence and self-esteem
- Allowing you to express yourself safely through creative arts
- Teaching you new skills and helping you find or rediscover interests
- Offering the chance to make new friends and become comfortable in groups
- When you’re ready, giving you chances to face and learn to cope with new challenges
We hope to help you develop the confidence to start accessing main stream groups and opportunities in your wider community. When you feel ready to do this we will assist you in identifying community-based activities using the great connections we have with local organisations.
