Creative Community Recovery Programme
Designed in response to the ongoing pandemic and running alongside our main Take Part series of activities, our newly launched Creative Community Recovery Programme offers a wide range of workshops, discussions and activities focusing on supporting mental health and emotional wellbeing.
The programme focuses upon the engagement of older adults who have found themselves particularly isolated because of COVID-19 and aims to harness the power of creativity to address the disconnection and isolation that so many individuals are continuing to experience. Working in collaboration with care homes and partner organisations such as Age UK, activities will be offered initially remotely via telephone, post or online. Over time and when it is safe to do so, this will hopefully lead to small group activities in-person at venues such as care homes or libraries, as well as in our own venues once they reopen.
The Creative Community Recovery Programme has been made possible thanks to the generosity of individual donations through our Coronavirus Crisis Appeal and specific grants from the Norfolk Community Foundation and Norwich Freemen’s Charity. Click here for more information.
