This is an Arts for Carers Service that offers Carers the opportunity to access structured arts-based courses which allows them to take a short break from their caring responsibilities.
They range from all sorts of themes from floristry, creative crafts and music appreciation.
The project is supported by the London Borough of Hillingdon’s Residents Services and is funded by a grant from Social Services.
