Hi all, Dilly Arts has been asked to share this info by the Northumberland Recovery College who you may recall we linked with via the funding from the NHS Northumberland Winter Resilience Fund whilst delivering our last run of compassionART sessions for people living in Northumberland with long-term chronic illness:“The Northumberland Recovery College offers courses and workshops to provide knowledge and skills to improve wellbeing. These cover a wide range of topics from Yoga to budgets, mindfulness to coping skills. Anyone is welcome to attend the college workshops, courses and activities, as well as be involved in the development of the college directly. We are always really keen for people to join the Development Groups of the recovery college, so that they can share what activities they think the different areas of Northumberland need. So if anyone from compassionART would be interested in that too, that would be brilliant.” ... See MoreSee Less

Our participants are all living with long~term chronic illness and this means that the vast majority are high risk and shielding. I’m now working really hard to try to get the sessions up and running ASAP and today I’ve already held discussions with a number of artists who’ll be leading the sessions.
