Creative Connections

This project is delivered by Espression Arts, with support from Kent Arts and Wellbeing, and is funded by the Colyer Foundation Family Trust

The project aims to reduce loneliness and improve the wellbeing of people living in supported housing and in the wider community. Progress has been very good and includes

Following on from project experience and more general learning, we are planning to develop our approach on loneliness to include elements of the psychological of loneliness  that can enhance our approach which primarily focuses on external causes.

The project has been well received, and participants would like it to continue beyond its planned finishing  time in June. In that context it is good to report, that with support from Espression Arts, residents have created/revitalised their residents group and are now actively planning future activities.
