In February 2021 EP Youth were awarded one of our Small Grants. The grant was used to buy art equipment and resources for activity bags enabling young people to be creative at home during lockdown. The aim of the activity bags was to encourage the young people to try something different, improve their wellbeing by doing creative activities and have fun.
The group has now returned to ‘face to face’ meetings but the benefits from the activity bags still continue. The group leader has noticed that the young people are now more willing to take creative risks with their art work. They are more willing to try new things and are producing a higher standard of art work.
Feedback from the young people involved:
Groups can apply for up to two grants of £500 per financial year. Find out more on our Grants page.
