Art can change lives. It's a powerful therapeutic tool and taking part in creative activities in a safe and supportive environment is the starting point for many of our clients’ recovery journeys.

As well as teaching arts and crafts techniques and encouraging self-expression, we use arts to support clients’ wider psychological and emotional needs. Our arts programme is designed to help clients form relationships, learn to work as part of a team, and develop a sense of meaning and purpose.

Painting, drawing, sculpture and drama help improve self-awareness and reflection, and can help people recognise and challenge negative and damaging behaviours and address traumatic past experiences.

Clients have told us that that they feel more motivated, have an improved quality of life, and are emotionally stronger due to our arts programme.  For some, art has acted as a major catalyst in their recovery.
