Our impact

Core Arts

Core Arts is a mental health creative education centre based in Hackney, East London.

Core Arts

What they do

They promote recovery, social inclusion and mental wellbeing through the arts and offer over 85+ classes a week in arts, music, multimedia, gardening, and sport.

Why we work with them

We were impressed by the high-quality experience offered by Core Arts’ professional tutors and their proven track record of stabilising the mental health of their members. We are excited to be supporting the construction of a canal boat, providing a new floating art school. Moored in East London, but travelling to other London boroughs, it will showcase the benefits of creative activities and help increase the uptake of social prescribing.

The Prudence Trust - investing in the advancement of young people’s mental health services

I am doing two jam sessions and it is the best part of my week. I am learning lots of new skills from the tutor and it has made such a big difference to my life, I’m happy when I’m there.
