Ardwick City Region Pilot Project 2011

South Manchester Regeneration Team commissioned Creative Hands Foundation (CHF) to deliver a series of creative art sessions to engage parents of pre school age children who were economically inactive. The main aims of the project were:

  • To improve health and well being of participants

  • Develop participant skills and confidence

  • Develop improved communication between parents and children.

  • Support the 5 aims of the ‘Every Child Matters’ framework.

  • Contribute to the ongoing development of ‘school ready/able’ children

  • Promote joined-up partner resources

Participants engaged in a range of activities including textiles, ceramics, music and drumming workshops as a joint activity for both parents and children.
Alongside the creative activities, participants were able to develop basic IT skills, designing posters and flyers to promote their finale event.
