Community Programme


Arts For Wellbeing – Mental Health Service in Stockport

The Community Programme

The Community Programme is the ideal entry point into Arc, with accessible small group courses based in neighbourhoods across Stockport.

Each session lasts for 2 hours every week for 10 or 12 weeks. The programme is led by experienced community artists and are designed to help participants build in confidence, relax, increase their wellbeing and feel more a part of their local community. All abilities are welcome.

The sessions take place in neighbourhoods across Stockport. Please email the team for details. If this is your first time at Arc it is recommended this programme before joining Creative Challenge. If you are interested in joining the Community Programme, please download a referral form below.
