Postal Projects designed by our Art for Wellbeing practitioners for independent adults looking for a creative way to enhance their wellbeing at home.
How it works
The artist working on the project designs about 8 cards with different activities based around a theme (e.g. Drawing) and gets them printed and delivered to their home, as well as sourcing and ordering materials to go with the activities.
The Emotional Support Worker (ESW) and coordinator then have introduction conference calls with the referral partner and referred participant to introduce the project and our voices. This provides us with a finalised list of engaged participants to whom we send a starter pack with a sketchbook, information and the Week 1 activity and materials.
Over the following 8 weeks the ESW calls each participant for a 15minute catch up where they help with as much as they can from signposting to motivation. Once the ESW has called everyone they update the artist who sends out the next activity and corresponding materials with a personalised note.
