One of the staff team has recently supported a client put forward some of her art work in an exhibition in Leeds.
Emma has been in the carer breaks service in Kirklees for 6 years and this great achievement has really built on her low confidence and self esteem.

“All through the trials of my life, art is the one thing that always consoles my soul. It started when I was young. I was very ill and had multiple operations, my mum would always bring copious amounts of art supplies into hospital to keep me occupied until I recovered. When I was in my early teens, I lost most of my sight, was left with blurs of colour and could see some movement. But I was never going to give up art, so I adapted what I did. I have Borderline personality disorder, I have struggled with suicidal thoughts, but art is always there when I need a distraction. I usually have poor self-esteem and think I’m rubbish but my art is the only thing I would say I'm good at” - Emma
