Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is affecting many aspects of life in Wales at the moment. All organisations need to assess the advice that Welsh Government has provided and make judgements as to how this will affect them.
Following a detailed risk assessment and our concern for the welfare of those we work with, we’ve decided to move our cARTrefu workshops and activity plans online. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and hope to return to working with you in person in the near future.
We’re running regular half day workshops across Wales to introduce care home staff to cARTrefu, giving practical advice and tips on how to run creative activities in care homes, building staff confidence, and using existing resources.
Our artists will also work with care home staff over four weeks to develop sustainable cARTrefu activity plans, which are accessible and easy to deliver. The workshops and activity plans are both free to care homes.
If you think your care home would benefit from the cARTrefu workshops, and / or having one of our artists work with you on an activity plan, then please complete the application form
We’re also running free cARTrefu workshops across Wales for artists and creatives interested in learning about the cARTrefu model and an opportunity to share best practice about working in care homes, with a particular focus on supporting residents living with dementia. We have a long-term aim of building capacity within the wider arts sector to respond to the needs of the care homes. These workshops are free to attend, and are advertised through our social media channels. When a workshop is live, you can register to attend through Eventbrite.
