“I’m more creative now than I have been, my friends can’t believe the stuff I talk about now and what I’ve learned. My wee brother wants to get involved with Impact Arts now too, I recommended it to him. I get on better with my mum and my family now. They saw me going to something every day and it made them proud.”

– Iain, Creative Pathways

“When I’m at Craft Café I am happy, relaxed and at one with like-minded people. I can ask for help and am never turned down. Here, I have learned how to paint and I feel pleased with the progress I have made.”

– Ann, Craft Café Member

“Gallery 37 was the first full time and mainstream course this young person had managed to attend successfully and it contributed greatly to their personal, social and emotional development. They speak of their experience in very positive terms and have gone on to engage in training.”

“The Impact Arts team are approachable, organized, professional, and efficient but do not lose their sense of fun, compassion and creative flair. I cannot recommend the Gallery 37 programme highly enough, which supports vulnerable and hard to reach young people. Young people are able to not only exceed their own expectations and surprise themselves with what they are capable of, but also those of their families, carers and the professionals they work with.”

– Julie Blackwood, Specialist Occupational Therapist, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)
