Could you pick up the creative baton?
This is the third phase of the project so far, providing support and building confidence among participants in Rochdale borough, and in Wigan and Bury. The project has generated huge enthusiasm among participants, and proved genuinely life changing for many. The scope and ambition of the project is described in the Project Brief.

The aim of Art for Wellbeing is to engage adults recovering from mental health problems in creative activities which will boost their confidence, increase and maintain their wellbeing, broaden their horizons and provide opportunities for progression. The project will be extended to neighbouring boroughs if funds can be raised.
