Get Involved

You can help us reach out to people who feel a low point in their lives and who are struggling to get help.

In the UK every 90 minutes someone takes their own life as they feel stuck in emotional pain and believe that there are no solutions to their problems.

In Coventry the number of suicides nearly tripled in 2017 and Warwickshire has one of the highest rates of suicide in the whole country.

You can help transform people's lives.

No matter what size, your donation will ensure we are there for anyone in Coventry and Warwickshire who needs us.

"Arty-Folks definitely saved my life.”

There are lots of different ways you can support Arty-Folks as an individual, with your friends as part of a team or with your work colleagues.

Please contact us if some of your employees are struggling with mental stress that is impacting on their work and personal life.

We can work with individuals in a private and confidential setting to help them bridge difficult times.

We need your help!

Arty-Folks is a Coventry grass-roots charity with a huge ambition to make a real difference in the community.  We are always looking for skilled volunteers to join us as Advisers or Trustees.

Every loss of life
to mental ill health
is one too many!

We strive for Excellence

“Arty-Folks is a small but effective charity that highly values its Volunteers and puts service users at the heart of everything it does.”

"Art helped me feel part of a community again and restored my trust in people."

‘Unseen Stories’ is a collection of beautifully illustrated stories to recovery of nine remarkable young adults aged 18 to 30 years old who attended Arty-Folks during 2017. 

Available on Amazon.

When you read ‘Unseen Stories’ you can literally ‘see’ what  young people mean through the rawness and turmoil expressed in their artwork.

These personal accounts  were written during 1:1 mentoring sessions at Arty-Folks.

Thank You !

for enabling us to pioneer new approaches to art and mental health and for trusting us to spend your grants effectively.

“I have to thank my peers at Arty-Folks for lifting me out of an endlessly dark phase in my life."
