It’s Learning Disability Week and we’ve got a lot to celebrate!
The Friendship Circle are thrilled to have received a £10,000 grant from The National Lottery Community Fund. The funding will enable us to further develop our Art Therapy Programme helping our members gain skills, build confidence and nurture friendships.
The theme of Learning Disability Week 2021 is Art and Creativity which is the perfect opportunity to showcase some of our members’ creativity from art club.’
We are delighted that for the second year running The National Lottery has recognised our work in this way. During lockdown we found that many members, especially our teens, enjoyed the accessibility of online art classes, enabling us to reach more people than ever before.
Moving forward we will continue our programmes online and run these alongside our face-to-face activities. Thanks to this grant we will also be including regular online-baking activities in our calendar which are proving increasingly popular.
