We act as a catalyst to help transform people who need help, into people who can help themselves.

 

 

We believe profoundly in the ability of the creative force to heal and support people; to increase their self-belief, raise their hopes and aspirations and to open their eyes to a better world for themselves.

 

This is not only for the obvious members of society - the poor, the lonely and the underachievers, but also for those who appear healthy plus those who are supporters and carers.

 

So, who are these groups we want to reach?

 

  • Deprived communities

  • Carers - young and old

  • The lonely elderly

  • Dementia sufferers 

  • Those close to death

  • Those with mental health issues

  • Those with physical limitations

  • Staff working with all of the above

  • Health centres

  • NHS - arts co-ordinators

  • Hospices
