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.
