Community Outreach Projects

My heart is in community work and bringing about the best in people who are facing their worst times. I have worked in community outreach since 2011, collaborating with various services to deliver free in-house training and group therapy to the community and getting people involved in projects that contribute to the city and also help them discover themselves. For more information on each project please click the links below.

The Writers Studio

The Writer's studio is a collaboration of people and services who promote writing as both an art form and a therapy. The Writer's Studio is based in Nottingham and targets those facing crises. Whether it be homelessness or addiction problems, all with an interest in writing are welcome at The Writers Studio.

City Arts

Along with Nottingham Recovery Network, I established an Arts Group which welcomed all ages and abilities. The group created personal projects and developed commissioned pieces for community organisations and public displays to complement local events and celebrations. The project was a success and even showcased on NottsTV. Click the link to find out more.

Womens Groups

During my time in working in the community, I was privileged to come across inspirational women from various backgrounds who shared their stories and experience of struggle. We founded the Women's Group to create a safe space for vulnerable women to meet and get access to resources and training to help them achieve their highest potential and recover from a life of adversity. I am incredibly proud to have been part of the project, please click the link for more information.
