Back to all projects

Parachute ACTIVATE is a project for people in need of positive and creative solutions to particular periods of transition in their lives. The project offers a wide range of high quality materials and equipment, which the participants are encouraged to use them in exciting and expansive ways. Set in the Project Art Works, the project is facilitated by two experienced artists and a trained support worker. The artists and support worker have training in techniques such as Positive Behaviour Support, Person Centred Active Support and Total Communication.

What we can offer:

  • Highly personalized interaction with a specialized artist team who have expertise in a broad range of art materials, techniques and processes
  • 1:1 support from artists and specialist support workers experienced in Intensive Interaction and Positive Behavioral Support
  • ‘Individual Pathways’ tailored to participants’ choices and preferences enabling them to lead their own development
  • Development of networks and relationships integral to wellbeing
  • Inclusion in regular cultural and community activities
  • Opportunities to show work online and at public exhibitions

We are now looking for participants for our Parachute Activate group, which will start in October 2017. The project will take place every Thursday, between 10.30am and 3.30pm, for 36 weeks a year. The project is funded through a major award from the Big Lottery and places are offered at a highly subsidized cost to participants. These are £50 for a session.
