Hear from Charlie, Lisa and Phil about Creative Connections

“Participants have clearly grown in confidence and are generally increasing engagements with each other. Each seems to be on their own journey with specific achievements… So many positive changes and progress for each participant!…  Providing a space where carers and participants can engage together creatively and positively will have an impact well beyond the two hour sessions.”

“Creative Connections gives the opportunity for groups from different settings to come together to make work but also to socialise and learn more about other participants lived experiences of a variety of disabilities and social / learning needs.”

“Participants have also been introduced to ideas and concepts which they might not otherwise have considered, and been encouraged to formulate their own views and opinions on important topics such as accessibility, climate change, and social justice.”
