Art Therapy Yorkshire is a Scarborough based registered charity, reg no.1169577, working locally and in the wider region. We now have six trustees, and welcome inquiries around widening our trustee base or membership.
We aim to provide Art Psychotherapy to children, young people and adults either from our studio base in Scarborough or our mobile therapy service throughout the surrounding area. To further that work we are now on the Approved Providers list which enables us to offer provision within the NYCC Pathways to Adoption service.
ATY is thrilled to be able to announce our participation in the Action Towards Inclusion programme as a specialist intervention partner. This three year project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund and is managed by Your Consortium based in Knaresborough.
Our Art Therapy studio group ArtTalking2, funded by the Peoples Health Trust, has recently ended, but we are working hard to continue this valuable contribution to our community. We also can offer our ‘European Social Fund’ Women’s Group, subject to a assessment interview.
We work together with other service providers, schools, voluntary and charitable organisations to improve standards of mental health in our area. We address social exclusion by making applications for funding to enable us to work with vulnerable members of society who otherwise could not afford a therapy intervention.
We at ATY are very keen to widen our membership, so if you hold the same values, believe in what we do, and wish to further our work, please contact us via our contact form.
