Carers,Latest News 25 March 2024

We wanted to share some good news with you all!

One of our registered carers, Tina, applied for a grant funding award through SANE Mental Health Charity, The Sane Creative Awards Scheme.

SANE has a long association with the arts and for many years held a successful awards scheme providing grants to individuals wishing to further their artistic development.

The SANE Creative Awards Scheme builds on this tradition and presents an opportunity for those affected by mental ill-health, including their families and carers, to take a step towards realising their creative potential. It awards grants to individuals to buy materials, enrol on courses, or hold exhibitions.
We are delighted to announce that Tina was successful in her bid and has proudly sent us over some of her artwork, she says “Thank you for recommending this grant, hopefully it will put Wigan Carers and Carers walks on the map.”

Well done Tina – we are thrilled for you!
