There is an overwhelming need for our services within the creative community, a need which is exacerbated in the economic context created by Covid-19. As a relatively new charity with very little institutional funding, our challenge is and always has been raising funds to adequately meet the need.We are reliant on the generosity of individual donations to build the capacity and resources to meet this growing need.
So far we have positively impacted the lives of over 2,000 people from a huge array of backgrounds, from different faiths and those of no faith.
We have provided 1-2-1 pastoral care or counselling for 512 creatives over 2000 hours. We have helped 5 creatives off the suicide list. And, we’ve been invited by our community members to share in their lives, 4 weddings, 6 funerals, 4 baptisms and 1 confirmation.
