Creative Sustainability is a values-led organisation, with Empowerment, Inclusion and Sustainability at the heart of everything we do. We provide residentials, activities, workshops, volunteering and work opportunities for marginalised people and communities across Gloucestershire, facilitating safe, supportive environments in which people can develop confidence and independence, raise self-esteem and expectations, access peer to peer support, volunteering, and paid work opportunities, develop and maintain friendships and become active citizens.
For many these are first steps towards improving mental and physical health and living happy and fulfilled lives:
• Inclusion: ensuring inclusion of people with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds, including those excluded from school and cared for young people.
• Sustainability: encouraging personal responsibility for the natural environment, living and working more sustainably, developing knowledge and understanding of the issues.
• Youth Empowerment: speaking up for young people, facilitating them to become more enabled, empowered and have a confident voice in their local and global community.
• Wellbeing: inclusive and community-based activities to prevent feelings of loneliness and promote good mental and physical health.
