The project aims to address the needs of carers and survivors who want to concentrate on developing their emotional, physical & cultural well being so that they can progress along the path to recovery. There is strong evidence to show that In addition to problems associated with the isolation that our beneficiaries experience many find that physical activity has taken second place to the demands of caring for a loved one or having to endure periods of intensive treatment


Respite & Recovery UK Dance The World Courses will provide our beneficiaries with enjoyable activities that address their isolation by working and communicating in a group. We know that many people readily engage in dance as a way of improving their fitness and health & a further benefit is the opportunity to widen experience and challenge preconceived ideas
