Shepway Spectrum Arts CIC

Mental Health and Wellbeing Advice & Support, Community Services, Additional Needs & Learning Disabilities Support Services

Description

Shepway Spectrum Arts is an all-inclusive community creative arts group that benefits the public by bringing together the profoundly disabled alongside able and gifted individuals and professionals. We provide a drop in service for many clients as keeping to a timetable can often be impossible for those with profound disabilities. Shepway Spectrum Arts has grown into a very broad charity that not only provides support to those with disabilities, but to those with mental health, dementia and isolation issues. At our Centre 'Edmonton House', our support focusses around inspiring creativity in bespoke sessions for individuals. Inspiration also comes from creating specific roles for members wanting to help with the running of the community group. This helps improve life-skills, alongside building a sense of purpose. Edmonton House is a place where you can just be yourself and feel at home.
