Creative Inspiration Shropshire is a social business (community interest company), established in 2014.
OUR SOCIAL MISSION is to grow individual and collective wellbeing and resilience in Shropshire through creative arts. We do so by providing high quality participatory creative arts programmes in care homes, hospitals, mental health services, community centres and schools in order to reach the most vulnerable and isolated people in our community.
OUR WIDER VISION is to evolve a grass roots and replicable model for social prescribing and community resilience. Our approach is rooted in the community, connecting, inspiring and enabling individuals to thrive and communities to flourish despite what life throws at them.The wider work includes arts for health and other approaches, eg, heritage, museums, physical activity, lifelong learning, ecological, social, advice and guidance.
OUR SOCIAL PRESCRIBING NETWORK is evolving to connect those in our community interested in accessing, delivering or facilitating social prescribing. Linking with regionals and national social prescribing networks we are shaping strategy and policy locally and nationally.
