Unable to deliver our usual face to face activities each week, this project was devised to enable our participants to stay connected with friends and peers, continue to engage in therapeutic art activities and develop new skills through a series of regular online workshops.

Many of our participants have been struggling with isolation and anxiety issues through the recent months of lockdown and social distancing. Physical disabilities, medical vulnerability and mental health issues have made the situation more challenging for them than many others in society. We wanted to continue to offer them the ability to stay in touch, share experiences, learn new skills and develop confidence in using technology that could also be used in other parts of their daily lives.
