Summary

Arts Together is an on-going programme that has operated successfully for 17 years and believe that being reliable and sustainable is the best way to support older people experiencing overwhelming change and loss. They believe that providing for basic needs is not enough to make life at any age worthwhile. They have 6 groups in Wiltshire and use high quality creative projects led by professional artists to enrich the lives and improve the health and wellbeing of frail, isolated older people living in the community.

Arts Together recognise that among the greatest challenges facing frail older people in our rural county are geographical and social isolation which too often lead to extreme loneliness, loss of confidence, increased confusion, susceptibility to falls and reduced life expectancy. They help members recover their zest for life and live independently and confidently in the community.
