Creative Minds is all about the use of creative approaches and activities in healthcare; increasing self-esteem, providing a sense of purpose, developing social skills, helping community integration and improving quality of life. We develop community partnerships to not only co-fund but also co-deliver projects for local people.
Take a look at the projects running today that you can join.
Since its launch in November 2011 Creative Minds has delivered more than 150 creative projects in partnership with over 50 community organisations. This has benefited over 4000 people.
Creative Minds is altering the perceptions of how we deliver our services. It is a social movement that is transforming lives.
