WE ARE A CHARITY supporting  VULNERABLE ADULTS of all ages WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, including ADDICTIONs, LEARNING AND PHYSICAL DISABILITIES.

The art sessions we provide at Creative Response are run by professional artists with the aim to provide a safe, caring environment where vulnerable people in our community can explore their creativity. With support and encouragement, participants find a voice to express themselves and reduce their levels of distress and anxiety.

*Coronavirus News*
'Unfortunately, we have had to suspend the provision of our arts sessions as a result of a small number of people, who have been to our premises, being informed that they should self-isolate. Although none have been confirmed as having the virus, we took the decision to close after consulting with staff and seeking guidance from the bodies which support the charity. At present we are unable to determine how long the closure will be in effect. As soon as anything changes we will inform all our staff, participants and supporters. Thanks to all of you who support the charity in these difficult times.'     
 Norman Wren, Chair of Trustees.

*Sad News*
'It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our Patron, Peter Rush, died two weeks ago. Peter was a wonderful ambassador for Creative Response, giving his time freely to us and many other charities. We were extremely fortunate to be able to benefit so greatly from the skills and creativity of such a multi talented artist. His workshops were always eagerly awaited and enjoyed by all who attended them. He was a lovely man with a wicked sense of humour, who was able to inspire and promote the creativity which exists in everyone. He will be sorely missed and will be remembered with great affection by all of us. Our condolences go to Vicky and the family.'
