  • Mission statement

    SOLA ARTS is a not-for-profit Community Arts project, which specialises in empowerment, social inclusion and integration for the betterment of the individual and the community, using the arts as a tool.

    SOLA ARTS works locally, nationally and internationally, across a broad range of Art Therapy programmes and art forms across a range of abilities.

    We hold an expertise in supporting refugee communities wiht mental distress and coming through trauma. We also speciliase as the only dedicated Art Psychotherapy orgainsation in the community in Merseyside.

    SOLA ARTS works with a range of people, (asylum seekers, refugees, elderly people living in care homes with a disability, young people with a disability, etc…) a prime focus on supporting the integration of marginalised communities within the local community. However, our main focus of delivery is supporting people from refugee and BME backgrounds.

    SOLA ARTS works with vulnerable children and adults including people with mental health illnesses. Mental ill-health and learning to cope on the road through recovery is not easy. We know this first hand as our staff and volunteers have their own lived experienced of mental distress either personally or through being carers of a loved one with mental health difficulties. So, we know how important both psychological and the right type of social support is, and we provide this 52 weeks of the year through programmes.
