We were delighted to receive a donation of a fantastic array of arts and crafts materials from WHSmith that we can use for therapeutic work with our clients. It has a number of benefits to people with a brain injury:
- Art is a relaxing activity that is involved in the process of creating something new, which leads to a sense of achievement and positive feeling.
- It is a physical activity that improves dexterity and is also a sensory activity that uses different materials.
- Art is a medium that some clients use to express themselves, the way they are feeling, and the impact of their injury.
- Some clients enjoy art at home but are unable to initiate the activity, so at Headway they can be encouraged to join in and practise.
Our thanks go to WHSmith for their generosity.
