We want our staff, artists, community partners and participants to stay well and healthy.

Following advice from the government, and in order to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus, we have – in consultation with our community partners – postponed our projects until further notice. All staff are working from home.

As a charity that exists to bring vulnerable participants together to reduce isolation, enhance wellbeing and provide opportunities to experience the joy, stimulation and empowerment of creativity, it’s hard for us to postpone our crucial, impactful work. We believe that in difficult times, access to creativity is more important than ever. We are working to find ways to survive the financial impact and to support our staff, artists, community partners and participants. As a creative charity, we intend to continue being creative. Watch this space!

It would make a huge difference to us if you would consider making a donation or joining our Create the Difference membership scheme.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is being affected by this situation and we pass on our very best wishes to all of you and your loved ones. We look forward to working with you again soon.
