We have spent this week carefully reflecting on new national guidance and exploring the needs of our staff and clients at this difficult time. The safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in our services is always our greatest priority.
As registered health care professionals, our therapists and support staff will continue providing our vital therapeutic arts for mental health services over the coming weeks. This will be done remotely – via telephone, video link, email, text, messenger, and postal services; and face to face for people who struggle to use remote services.
Our building has been independently inspected and evaluated as COVID secure by a health and safety expert, and our policies and practices scrutinised by local authority colleagues.
We have a private outdoor space where people can meet safely and are strictly adhering to safer distancing guidelines. If you need to access our face to face services, we will do everything we possibly can to keep you safe. Equally, if you would prefer to access your services remotely, we will work as creatively as we can to help you feel cared for and connected during this time of isolation.
Our doors are still open, we are still taking referrals, and we are here to support you through these next weeks and months. We have funding to offer our work for free if you need it. If you, or anyone you know might benefit from arts therapies to help you work through stress or trauma, or therapeutic arts to build your confidence, health & wellbeing, please do get in touch.
Inspirative Arts are putting into place preventative strategies into place as outlined by the Government and NHS during Covid 19 crisis, and continuing to update.
Please see our current policy regarding all work carried out during this time.
