Charity information

First Taste

Our unique Charity seeks to provide high quality stimulative programmes of inter-active arts workshops to frail older people in residential care or nursing homes or attending day centres across the Dervyshire Dales.
This is achieved through application to a wide variety of funders or grant making bodies. All programmes are ringfenced against specific awards. The Charity receives no core funding. The only paid personnel are the tutors delivering the programmes plus currently a Programme Manager and a Social Care Manager who are invoved in the day to day management of our present major TOPIC (Tutoring Older People in Care) Project - a 2 year Project which finishes Summer 2009. All administration and day to day management of the Charity is undertaken voluntarily.
