We are an Arts and Health Activity Centre for people affected by homelessness and exclusion. The project is based in West London and provides crucial social support for isolated people.

The project runs a range of creative arts groups and health improving activities.

We also offer one-to-one sessions in Cooking for Independent Living, Budgeting, Tenant Relations, and Working through Debt.

Our staff and volunteers are available to help with individual issues, ranging from problems with the Council or Benefits Agency, accommodation issues and practical advice.

We are developing new ways to help people see themselves in a different light, so they will be able to approach the issues they face with more confidence. We like to encourage people to try new experiences and build habits that will improve their quality of life.

Bring your humanity to your art. Bring your art to humanity.
— Maxime Lagacé
