A NEW Service for Older People to help improve their Health & Wellbeing!

Norden Farm Centre for the Arts is looking for Community Groups and Organisations, who may have clients to refer or may want to promote this new service to their members, to help improve their health and wellbeing.

SocialArts will be a weekly creative club, targeted at older people who may benefit from more social contact and trying various arts based activities - no special talent or experience needed!

It is a creative programme, which aims to support participants to learn new skills, form social networks and reconnect with the community.

The crafty group will be run across the year, starting in January 2017 with a series of taster workshops where participants can try the service out for size and meet artists and other participants.

SocialArts runs from 10am – 1pm and includes lunch. The cost of each weekly session is just £5 per person, including lunch in the Norden Farm Café Bar. Specialised transport can be arranged free of charge for participants who require it.
