Create & Chat

Project ‘Create & Chat’ is an arts­ based proactive emotional, social & communication programme aimed at  parents & carers of young people with complex hidden needs. The programme focuses on individuals that have young dependents with complex hidden needs and/or find themselves with potential or present mental health issues that are leading to social isolation, community separation and emotional ill-health

Sessions are run by a psychotherapist & arts practitioner with volunteer support. Sessions focus on emotional wellbeing & development along with individual development focus. Emotional development is interlaced into each session without conscious awareness creating a safe & secure environment for individuals to enjoy, have fun, develop & grow. Individuals find space to be themselves without judgement or expectation, creating an environment of nurture, support & friendship to understand, experience & learn in their own individual way. We have found when individuals are relaxed, feel safe & create, their minds are focused & open allowing them to feel free to discover & grow.

The project will run monthly for 10 months from January 2019 and the funds will be used to support overall costs including staff salaries, material costs, publicity, venue hire.
