What we do

Past projects

 Since it's foundation in 2008, Sustaining Life has led a number of community projects. The first and longest running of these was a therapeutic allotment for people with a variety of health and social needs.  Other projects have included community photography classes, stained glass workshops and mutual support groups.  We have also used our lived and professional experience of mental ill health to inform the content and delivery of our awareness raising and teaching presentations.

Recently,  one of our founders, Judith Parry, took part in the CODA festival in mid Wales on 27th & 28th July. Using her particular brand of poetry and humour, she  covered topics as diverse as space-hoppers, hats and mental health.  Find out more here and here
