Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion

Facilitating community art workshops that allow art activities to help participants open up and talk while working and enable them to express themselves visually. Engaging in meaningful activities contributes to community participation for the members of the mental health community in Tower Hamlets; this means to connect with others and break down isolation and loneliness. To help participants become more insightful about their unhelpful habits to understand better making healthy choices. It will support people with mental health, helping them overcome social barriers and participate in wider communities.


Sustainability & Improving Lives
