Since starting up Mobile Craft 4 U, we’ve worked with a wonderful range of local organisations and individuals, helping to spread creativity, joy and mindfulness through our bespoke workshops.
We work with all types of group, but are especially interested in working with those that support people who have been affected by physical or mental health issues, or who have special needs. Suitable for all ages, our clients include care homes, community centres, schools, social enterprises and charities.
We have had the privilege of receiving funding from Big Lottery Awards for All for three, year long, projects. In 2018 we were awarded funding for a two year programme of workshops by The National Lottery Community Fund Reaching Communities. Thanks to funders such as Tesco Bags of Life, Living Well Sefton, HOP -Happy older people- The Community foundation for Lancashire and Merseyside, Sefton Mayoral Office and The Co-operative Community Fund, we have been able to provide projects, free of charge, to many charities and community groups in the Merseyside and Lancashire region.
We have worked in partnership with several charities and community organisations such as:
Macmillan Cancer Care– Initially a 36 week project, we have since facilitated many 6 week courses for people living with cancer. Also at Daisy Chain, a small charity based in Formby supporting those affected by the disease.
Life Rooms– A centre in Southport supporting recovery and helping people living with and managing mental health issues.
Brighter Living– A charity committed to tackling social isolation for the elderly residents of High Park, Southport, which is an area of high deprivation.
Home Start– A charity helping mothers with young children struggling with mental health issues and post natal depression.
The Hesketh Centre– A residential and day care facility, treating those with both chronic and acute mental health conditions.
