In order to protect the safety of our Glasgow and Edinburgh members, and in light of Government recommendations on COVID-19, we are no longer meeting in our regular Craft Café locations in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
However, we are working with each individual to provide monthly activity bags shaped to their interests. This is supported by regular online craft/arts activities; the provision of creative and exercise focused activities newsletters/booklets; and regular phone calls and welfare check-ins.
Craft Cafe and Creative Cafe provide a safe, social, and creative environment where older people age 60+ can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with their communities. The activities, facilitated by artists, are self directed by participants, harness the joy of creativity, artistic expression, experimentation and learning.
You can watch a short film about our Craft Cafe workshops in Govan and Edinburgh here. You can also read more about our work with older people on our older people's blog.

The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
You can help us achieve this target through making a single gift, or a regular donation. Thank you.
