Community Based Projects

Active Recovery

Our Active Recovery Project is for clients of the Southmead Project and provides community based activities once a fortnight. It gives survivors the opportunity to build up their confidence, try some fun activities and socialise with others who have a shared understanding of their experience.

Art of Survivors

In 2019 we ran eight art workshops with survivors of abuse who were clients of the Southmead Project and Kinergy

They were able to express themselves through activities such as painting, sculpture and poetry and used creativity to help support their healing process. 

The inspiring works of art were proudly displayed at two safeguarding conferences in Dorchester and Bournemouth in 2019.

The project was funded by the Barnardo's Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse. 

Please see some of these fantastic pieces here:
