Inside Out Cymru have been successful in two Regional Integration Fund bids in this round! The fund aims to support the overall work of Integrated Partnership Boards in delivering community care and promoting good emotional health and wellbeing. The successful bids will support 2, 10-week arts and craft workshops in both Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent – totalling 40 weeks of arts for wellness engagement for the Gwent community.

The first of the planned provision from this fund begins on Friday October 13th in the Cromwell Road Centre in Bulwark, Chepstow. Experienced artist Nathan will deliver arts and craft sessions for committed IOC participants as well as opening up the session to new members. 

A further 10-week arts session will be announced in Blaenau Gwent this side of Christmas, with a further 2 10-week blocks in the works for the new year. Watch this space! 

With thanks to GAVO Monmouthshire, GAVO Blaenau Gwent, Aneurin Bevan UHB and project manager Kate Verity for their hard work and impactful advice and support.
