How Does It Work?

Is your child living with a long-term health condition? We know it can be lonely. That’s why we want to help you discover life ‘beyond the diagnosis’ and give your child the chance to shine.

Our creative workshops are open to children and young people aged 6-18 years. Recommended by hospitals across the country, you can find us at your local outpatient clinic, sign up to a community workshop, or join us remotely at home.

All workshops are…

  • Free of charge
  • Delivered by professional artists
  • Inclusive and accessible
  • Overseen by paramedics
  • Supported by volunteers

We give children the space to…

  • Be themselves and have fun
  • Meet new people and make new friends
  • Learn new skills in painting, crafting, filmmaking and more!
