Creative minds applications

The Trust aims to support voluntary and community organisations to deliver, in partnership with Trust staff, a variety of creative projects to the people who use Trust services and their carers.

The aim of this work is to ensure there is a strong infrastructure of community organisations able to work with the Trust to provide excellent creative projects for the people who access our services.

To do this we have set up two distinct initiatives: Creative Minds Projects and Creative Minds Partners.
