Through our work, we have seen young children discover their creativity, people living with dementia remember poems that they love, those recovering from substance misuse create a writing group.  Poetry offers the chance for people young and old to express themselves and embrace the world around them.

Every day, we see how poetry can enhance people’s lives.  Poetry can also simply provide us with a sense of happiness and enjoyment, and the chance to embrace our creative side.

To console the afflicted; to add sunshine to daylight by making the happy happier; to teach the young and the gracious of every age to see, to think, and feel.
William Wordsworth on the purpose of his poetry -
