The Well-City Project
Well-City Salisbury is about connection – to the arts, heritage, our local area, the landscape and to each other.
ArtCare, Salisbury Museum, Wessex Archaeology and Wiltshire Creative have partnered together to support the wellbeing of people with low to medium mental health needs, in the Salisbury area, through delivering creative courses. These free, 8-week long courses are available for both adults (over 20s) and young people (14-19).
If you would like to find out more about the courses available, please contact Zoe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07707 296883 (Monday-Thursday)
Well-City Salisbury is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
Celebrating Age Wiltshire
Wiltshire Music Centre is the lead partner for Celebrating Age Wiltshire (CAW), a county-wide project delivering culture and heritage events and activity in community settings to support the wellbeing of vulnerable older people.
Participants include those who are socially isolated or vulnerable due to dementia, reduced mobility, ill health or caring responsibilities, and those who are particularly impacted through the current Covid-19 circumstances.
CAW is currently working across 10 local areas across the county: Corsham, Royal Wootton Bassett, Calne, Trowbridge, Amesbury and Salisbury, Warminster, Malmesbury, Melksham and South West Wiltshire.
