Creative Minds, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, is awarding match funding to enable not-for-profit and self-help groups in Calderdale to deliver a variety of creative projects to the people who use Trust services and their carers in partnership with South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust staff.
The ethos behind Creative Minds is based on the recognition that the use of creative approaches and activities has proven to increase self-esteem, provide a sense of purpose, develop social skills, help community integration and improve an individual’s quality of life. Activities can be wide ranging including arts, sports, leisure, and green activities – gardening, archery, sculpture and walking are just a few examples.
Awards of up to £4,950 are available – the deadline for 2015/16 is Friday 7th August 2015.
