What is the impact on the individual, care staff & the environment you work in? 

Laura Aldridge : The  biggest  thrill  from  the  work  I  do  with  Artlink  is  that  it  gives  agency  to  individuals  who  through  physical and  mental  difficulties,  quite  often  don’t  have  any  –  choice  is  just  something  that  falls  away  from  their  daily  lives. In  our  sensory  workshop  sessions,  we  try  and  make  the  people  we  are  working  active  –  enabling  them  to  chose what  they  work  with  and  how  –  if  they  are  unable  to  communicate  in  traditional  ways,  we  look  for  other  ways to  have  conversations  with  them,  and  the  staff  that  work  to  support  them.  its  like  we  try  and  build  a constellation  around  that  person,  so  they  can  orbit  through  it!
