Arts and Crafts Stories

Creativity and independence are at the heart of what we do; we are devoted to making a difference to the lives of the people we support. That is especially true for those who join our Arts and Crafts Centre as an Artmaker.

Here, some of those Artmakers share their stories from our amazing Arts and Crafts Centre and explain how they have found the confidence to go beyond expectations.
