Join the Carer Voices project in a range of creative activities to support your mental health and wellbeing.

During this period of uncertainty, the Carer Voices project would like to invite you and your loved ones to join our community in a range of creative activities to support your mental health and wellbeing.

Share your message in a bottle 

The Carer Voices project has launched a campaign for individuals and organisations to share their messages of hope for a post COVID-19 world and messages to loved ones, key workers and unpaid carers. These messages will be collected until 26 June 2020.

Get involved by sending your message of hope to carervoices@alliance-scotland.org.uk or by using our digital template to create your own.

A call to spread kindness through words and art

Carer Voices Project Lead Tommy Whitelaw has called upon the role of the whole community in spreading kindness and hope during this time.

Get involved by creating posters and art or writing words and poetry for key workers and other people in your communities. Send all submissions to the project to further spread messages of kindness across channels.

Transform recycled materials into inspiring art

The Carer Voices Artist-in-Residence Xuechang Leng has upcycled household food packing to create a butterfly telling the story of re-birth and growth.

Now our Artist-in-Residence is encouraging others to create something of their own using recyclable materials to inspire others while at home.

Monthly 1 song singalong

Join the project for monthly one song singalongs on Zoom on Fridays at 3pm to spread positivity and have some fun with others while social distancing.

Email the project with any song requests, to receive the link to join and share the invite across networks #1SongSingalong. 

Email us at carervoices@alliance-scotland.org.uk or tag us on Twitter @ALLIANCECarerVo #CarerVoices20.
