Hobbies and activities
delivered at home.
We are a not for profit organisation offering one of the first “at home” portable hobby and activity services.
We offer a wide range of sessions from carpentry to upcycling furniture and from drawing to creative writing and we will try to support any new interests upon request. You can be a beginner or an expert and book one session or a series – we are very flexible and friendly.
Our service can help your family and friends (as well as yourself!) to experience activities at home for a wide variety of reasons such as treating a friend or relative, time pressure or just to have fun and learn at their own pace.
If you are interested to hear more, please call or mail for a confidential chat.
“Did I make that? What a lovely time we have had, peaceful, no problems, nothing to disturb us, just a lovely afternoon”
Care Home resident, December 2017
“this is just brilliant, nothing like it available. About half of clients after a terminal diagnosis want to make the best of what time they have left and it is so difficult to find solutions”
Charity Outreach Worker, November 2017
“As a sociable activity, all of our clients had a wonderful morning with Takeaway Creative, engaged together in a creative activity that they had never done before. It is worth noting that the vast majority of our clients have been referred to us by statutory services as they have been identified as experiencing some form of loneliness or social isolation.”
