Sharing some great news - By Alison Henderson FRSA

Last week Mind Crafts was awarded National Lottery funding and funding from the FM awards at Forever Manchester. 2019 is going to be a great year for us and we can't thank every one enough for their support. We have and will continue to make a difference within our community and can expand our work in prison's.  In January I will be working on distraction packs for in-cell activities and we are never short of ideas!  Thank you all and wishing you a Merry Christmas.  It's onward's and upwards!
