Wish You Were Here Project - East Riding of Yorkshire
Funded by the East Riding VCSE Network
The Wish You Were Here Project ran from December 2020 to March 2021, and provided free creative workshops to residents in the East riding of Yorkshire. The project aimed to reduce feelings of social isolation and build resilience through the winter months, particularly those in rural areas. It was an opportunity for participants to engage in creative task to promote positive mental health in difficult times. 20 sessions were delivered online to over 120 participants, plus we supplied 20 additional free arts kits to residents in the area.

Together We Sew - Hull
Funded Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in Partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund
Together We Sew was a sewing project initiative that aimed to reduce feelings of isolation and disconnection between people in the Hull area, and promote positive mental health in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The project provided a series of FREE online sewing sessions for participants. Working on either a bag or a top, learners were guided through the making process, and gained valuable opportunity to connect with others. To find out more about the project, see our video and images below, and click here for more detailed information.
