Cooltan Arts

We use creativity and self-advocacy to transform disabled people's lives

Charity Registration No. 1064231

Story

I'm running (read trotting, then walking, then crawling) 35 miles around Northamptonshire on June the 2nd in aid of CoolTan Arts.

CoolTan are a relatively small charity, run out of South London, who offer people with mental health issues a range of creative workshops. They also offer self-advocacy classes, which teach people how to speak up about their situation, and ask their care team questions like "what drugs am I on?", "why?" and "do I have a choice?".

If you know me then you'll know that these are topics I feel passionately about. We should have way more of them, which makes the total cut in NHS funding that CoolTan suffered recently all the worse.

I reckon it's a cause worth running 35 miles for. 

 

Oh by the way, if I die on the course, no refunds.
