On Tuesday 24th October we used our Annual General Meeting (AGM) as an opportunity to celebrate or the individuals achievements they have made of the past year.

Who Came

Our clients who engage in a range of creative expressive therapeutic sessions came with their families, friends and carers to celebrate their achievements. We had individuals come who engage in 121 creative expressive therapies and individuals who take part in group sessions which use movement, music, art and drama as a vehicle for expression. Councillor John Whitby and his family also joined us for this celebration and were presented their certificates by him.

Carers

The individuals who come to Inspirative Arts are empowered to make these achievements as independently as possible but it can not go without saying that their carers are always a huge support and play a very important role. The proposed future of carers services in Derby City has now gone live.
