The workshop and craft programme is an essential and integral part of the holistic treatment at Gloucester House. We recognise that creative activities can often provide a outlet for personal expression. In addition to this ‘therapeutic’ function, the workshop programme offers clients hands-on opportunities, improving life-skills, learning to plan and see projects through to completion, and restoring self worth.

In addition to the craft studio, workshop resources include:

  • IT opportunities

  • Allotment and IT training

  • Dept support

  • Gardening projects

  • Beginners DIY instruction/projects

  • Pottery & Kiln

  • Cooking and Budgeting life skills

Clients engage in the workshop & craft programme three afternoons each week.  Workshop facilities are available for client use at other times including weekends.
