So many people across our communities in Gloucestershire are struggling with the effects of the pandemic. Please help us to raise funds so more adults can join our art courses to improve their mental and physical health, and reduce social isolation.
People with mental health issues, cancer and/or long-term health conditions are struggling to adjust, or continue living with symptoms including chronic pain, depression and anxiety and are often feeling socially isolated. As one person who came to us said: 'Prior to the course I felt very ashamed of the mental health problems I have. I was also extremely isolated'

'Attending Artlift has definitely improved my confidence, provided me with some company once a week and honestly has been a lifeline to me in a very challenging and stressful period of my life'
