Keeping Connected & Creative

for participants
for carers

Throughout 2020 we’ve a series of projects and services to support people to keep connected!

  • Art-2-Art Catch Up Calls:
    If you’d benefit from a regular hello
    and friendly chat, our team of
    volunteers are on hand. We’ve had
    book sharing, poetry readings and
    over-the-phone support taking on
    creative challenges.
  • Create at Home Packs:
    Each free monthly pack is filled with
    creative activities devised by artists
    who lead our sessions for older
    people and those living with
    dementia. Dip in and have a go
    using the materials you have around
    the home and garden.
  • Singing Hinnies:
    There are a great many who
    continue to shield and self-isolate.
    Order a song and smile with a
    garden gig from the Singing Hinnies.
    Our musicians will pop along to your
    street for a spot of singing and
  • Creative Friends:
    For those wanting to get back to face
    to face sessions, our Creative Friends
    group will this autumn be meeting
    under strict social distancing
    guidelines at The Shipley in
