Combating isolation, and promoting connectedness through the use of art making during COVID-19.

With much in the world as we know it changing, many of us are staying at home.

The government has advised us to regularly wash our hands, make only essential trips to pick up food, to work from home where possible, and to follow social distancing measures.

We are living very differently and it is so important that we are able to safety remain connected with one another, with ourselves and with our environment.
To help our service users during this time, at Violet Care Agency we have created wellness activity packs that are themed around nature and mindfulness. We hope these packs will be useful for our service users to stay connected to the world around them.

These packs contain natural materials such as shells and pebbles as well as images themed around nature. Each activity encourages the participant to tune in to the way they are feeling which can reduce anxiety and stress.

We would like to thank the local Hobbycraft and Tesco for donating art materials which have helped bring this initiative to fruition.
These packs will be distributed by our carers from the 30.3.20.
It would be lovely for service users to share images of what they’ve created using the packs so that we can share these on the website so that others can take inspiration.
