Engaging people with mental health issues in creative arts is a proven way of promoting self-confidence and self-esteem. It can even become a route back into work and wider society. Zoofish Arts has been doing this in Poole, Dorset, since 2014, giving people a space to discover new ways to express themselves and develop new skills. We loved hearing from Rachel about how they've put the funding they received from the Co-operative Bank's Customer Donation Fund to good use.
All Community Directplus account holders can apply for up to £1000 from the Customer Donation Fund to support special projects and fundraising activities. The closing dates for applications are March and September, and they will then be assessed in April and October. We will notify you of the outcome of your application. Apply using the form below.
