About Us

The group has been running since 2012 and we are extremely thankful for the funding that we have received. The project is delivered by Door 84 staff and our amazing, enthusiastic volunteers.DSCF0841

The weekly sessions offer a variety of creative activities and positive opportunities to learn and develop new skills, exploring individual’s creative ambitions whilst providing the opportunity to socialise in a stimulating and welcoming environment. Community Sparks aims to help people grow creatively, emotionally, physically and socially. Integral to the project is the inclusion of carers. The sessions also allow for networking and support for them in their role.
