Arty-Folks is a small grass-roots charity with a huge ambition to empower people with mental ill health to rebuild their lives and reach their potential.

We need your help to make a real difference in the wider Coventry area.

Board of Trustees

We are always looking to appoint new Trustees to the Board and if you can offer particular expertise in areas such as finance, legal, NHS/CCG, local authority, IT, HR, Health and Social Care, fundraising and corporate sponsorship we would like to hear from you!  Please email your CV to info@arty-folks.org.uk

Our Board of Trustees meets quarterly and serves as Arty-Folks’ governing body.  Our Trustees discuss and make decisions in the best interests of our charity and they are collectively responsible for ensuring Arty-Folks is well run and serves the people we are here to support.

Make a Difference

Inspire and Encourage

“Talking to Peer Volunteers has inspired me and filled me with hope.  They have been through similar experiences and it’s such a relief to know there will be a light at the end of my dark tunnel too. ”

Art Workshop Volunteers

We offer volunteering at our art workshops to our own service users who are in a position to help others and who are looking to progress to volunteering in the community, to start education or employment.

We offer 10 week placements to 2nd year art students at Coventry University who wish to explore working in a community setting.  Art students can boost their employability and gain invaluable insight into how the visual arts can support people to rebuild their lives.  We only consider applications received through CUSU Coventry University Student Union.
