Arts and health

Creative crafts session



The Arts and Health programme is about participating in creative activities and having fun. The health and wellbeing benefits of arts activities are well documented, and people that come along to the sessions make new friends, enjoy the social opportunity and learn interesting new creative skills. It’s not about reaching a standard, just having a go!

Just Reminiscing

Free sessions, no need to book, just come along and handle objects/artefacts and scrapbooks from decades gone by and share your precious memories with us. Weekly two hour drop-in sessions are held at various public venues. If you would like us to bring our reminiscence session to your event or social group please get in touch

Fun Arts 

Free, relaxed and sociable. Come and have fun playing with paints, canvases and other easy and accessible materials. This is also a dementia friendly activity that supports people living with dementia and their carers. Supported by a friendly session leader, you can have a brew and a chat and take home whatever you make. Garstang YMCA, Thursdays 11.30am - 1pm.

Volunteer recruitment opportunities
