At Impact Arts we believe that
everyone can be creative so we use the arts to help people make positive
lasting change in their lives, whether they are 3 or 93 years old. Across our
flagship programmes, we work with young people to help them increase their
future life prospects and prevent homelessness, and older people to prevent
isolation and loneliness and encourage social inclusion. Established in 1994
from our base in Glasgow we now operate across Scotland. Impact Arts employs
more than 50 staff and over 200 freelance artists.

Craft Café is a project that
aims to reduce isolation and loneliness for people aged 55+ through engagement
in arts and craft activities, inspiration trips and social e vents.

faxing, maintaining stationery stock and materials.
