The Delivery Team

Our team is a collective with the shared values of building community, supporting people in vulnerable life moments, and strengthening the seams of community using textiles and craft. We believe in art and creativity have an essential role in health and wellbeing. We have a Board of Directors who look after the business and vision of the organisation in a voluntary capacity. We have an artistic team with a wealth of experience – in creating, co-creating, and facilitating – for both excellent artistic and community outcomes. We also have a community team who help us realise the potentials of our projects. Across our team we also nurture volunteers to help extend the reach of our work, and support as many people as possible.

Our team is made up of colleagues, not employees.
