    Story

    After living with a life changing health condition for several years I was fortunate to be given the opportunity of taking part in a 12 week drama project for adults with mental health issues. I had always had a longing to take part in amateur dramatics but always lacked the confidence, but being in a safe environment with others suffering similar health issues and lacking, confidence and self- worth enabled me to participate in activities I would have previously shied away from. The experience was not only life changing for me but for the majority of participants. I then went on to take part in another couple of 12 week projects and the confidence and life enhancing social skills I and other participants had gained empowered us to set up our own peer led charitable amateur dramatic group for adults with mental health issues and mild learning disabilities, which made a huge impact on all concerned.

    Now that I have moved area and my long term health condition is sufficiently improved to enable me to return to work, I am determined to pursue a career that I am passionate about, helping others access opportunities to enhance their wellbeing and build self- confidence and self esteem, empowering them to make positive improvements to their lives and engage more easily with the wider community.

    For the last several months I have been on various training courses including teaching drama, dramatherapy, film & tv production and level 3 award in education and training and am now ready to move forward with setting up a Charitable Incorporated Organisation so that I can provide projects that can be accessed by all regardless of any health, social or financial limitations. My experience as Treasurer of a community group, including applying for grants and project devising coupled with the training I have recently undertaken mean I am fully aware of what I am undertaking and I am excited and eager to get underway.

    I truly believe that everyone can benefit from participating in creative activities, providing they feel comfortable and safe enough to express themselves and have fun without fear of abuse or humiliation, and this is what Createability 4 all will provide.

      Many thanks to those who have donated so far. Things are moving along nicely and the trustee will be having their inaugural meeting to ratify the constitution on 29th September, and we will then be in a position to apply to the Charity Commission for CIO status. We are also currently working on some ideas for fundraising events.
