Art Branches are a self-described ‘community interest company’ who set up creative, inclusive, art-based projects linking people to their environment. Their aim through their work is to improve the mental and physical health of children and adults who are recovering from mental health issues, and to support vulnerable people with their wellbeing.

Many of their projects have been of amazing benefit to carers, with numerous participants coming together and joining in from different locations. These projects are a brilliant way to connect with the great outdoors, get creative, meet new people and enjoy a new experience.

Art Branches are putting on an exciting outdoor event specifically for young carers at the end of the month, on Friday the 28th, taking place in the beautiful village of Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast.

If you’re a young carer who would enjoy this, or know a young carer who would, email to book a limited space. See the poster below for further information, or check out their Facebook page.
