Thank you so much to everyone who nominated us for BBC CWR #BBCMakeaDifference award.

We are finalist in the community group category!
It feels so amazing gaining recognition that Covid-19 could not stop our staff and volunteers supporting our members with their mental health.

Not being there for our members at the time when they needed us most was simply not an option!

From the start of the first lockdown we went online, delivered art packs to people's doorsteps, made daily calls and visits, helped with supplies, fetching medication, helped sorting out benefits and bills, dealt with nuisance neighbours and domestic violence, and everything else in between!

Those were crazy times but even though the dust has now settled somewhat, the pressures on our mental health have not let off at all!

Community groups like Arty-Folks continue to play a vital role in supporting vulnerable people and reducing the pressure on NHS services.

We can't wait to meet the other finalists at the award ceremony in September.

Want to explore how your creative practice supports your mental health and wellbeing?

Mental health is a widely discussed topic these days. Exactly what is meant by it is not easy to describe and has become a bit blurred.

But what we do know for certain is that your mental health helps determine how you handle stress, relate to others, and in fact impacts on every aspect of your life.

All of this and more you will be able to process creatively in our Fine Art to Wellbeing course starting tomorrow Wednesday 29th at 1pm
