Creative Sessions with a Well-being focus:
Working with a range of professionals, Pioneer can deliver sessions that include arts & crafts, writing, singing, music, movement, gardening and cooking. These aim to be socially inclusive, build skills and confidence, provide opportunities to volunteer or perform for those that want to and, above all, help people stay well. These can take place in community venues, galleries, museums, care homes or where-ever people feel comfortable coming together to be creative
1-1 Facilitation and Support:
Pioneer employs a dedicated Facilitator that works with individuals to assess their well-being and help them put together a programme of support with Pioneer or ensure they know about and can access support from other local providers.
Training in Creative Approaches to Well-being
Pioneer has a dedicated Training Manager and team of artists that can empower professionals to use creativity as a tool for improving well-being. Whether focused on mental health, dementia, autism spectrum conditions or work with younger people and whether embedded in a school, museum, gallery or care home or community venue setting, the team can provide bespoke training packages best suited to individual need.
Bentham Community Hub & Library
Pioneer runs its own creative community well-being hub in Bentham. As well as a space for delivering sessions, providing training and 1-1 support, it is also home to Bentham Community Library (with an additional range of activity such as IT training), has space to hire for local groups and helps support and promote a range of local events such as the annual carnival, lantern parade and panto.
