We will be running Offload sessions alongside there Creative sessions which is a fantastic opportunity that we are greatly appreciative of and hope to develop this partnership further.

The second half of Offload sessions in partnership with START will inspire you to get better by taking part in START’s Inspiring Minds creative arts sessions. It's amazing how something as simple as painting a picture, creating a piece of pottery or spending time learning about woodwork can help with anxious, negative thoughts and bring about some inner peace. You can choose from woodturning, ceramics, calligraphy and visual arts, photography or gardening.

Improved wellbeing, a sense of self-worth and greater confidence are all things that our members achieve once they've taken part. You'll also get to interact with others, make new friends, and receive guidance on getting involved in your local community. What's more, a lot of the skills you'll pick up will be useful for gaining employment, volunteering,  further education or other developing more leisure/social activities.
