Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

Year 1 Awardee

Craft and Friendship Group

Type of initiative funded: Arts and crafts


Funding awarded: £2000


Project description:

The Craft Group was operating pre-Covid-19. Many of the people attending were elderly, lonely, in need of befriending, and requiring support to venture out into the world again. Wellbeing and friendship support is offered to all who previously attended or who would like to attend and benefit from the Arts and Craft activities that are shared by participants or who just need a blether and a cup of tea in a safe place, amongst caring people. This project is seen as phase one of a multi-phase set of Community based offerings to be rebuilt after Covid on a basis of sharing, supporting and providing social wellbeing practical projects within the St.Ninians umbrella.
