Our Creative Writing group which is facilitated across Wolverhampton, Dudley and Walsall has been a massive hit with all attendees rating the group 4 or 5 out of 5 (20% and 80% respectfully).

The Creative Writing group was introduced to build confidence whilst improving literacy and writing skills resulting in a more positive wellbeing.

The group was led by Community Wellbeing Worker, Rebecca Clark who was thrilled with how Creative Writing was praised so highly.

She said: I can only be happy with all positive responses to the Creative Writing group and the best thing of all is the fact the group is improving service users writing abilities and enhancing their wellbeing.

Feedback from service users who attended the creative writing group has also been excellent with service users encouraging others to go to the group.

Participants said:

“I now believe I have the ability to articulate my views and opinions in a more constructive way.”

“As writing is totally new for me, I’ve learned so many things which has allowed me to reach potential I never knew I was capable of.”

“After attending the group I have grown a real passion for creative writing and use it as a coping strategy to boost my wellbeing when I’m feeling down”

“Creative writing has become an invaluable tool in allowing me to express my emotions as at times I can struggle to explain my feelings.”
