Every one of us has a creative side, even if we think we don’t! Doing a craft or a hobby is a great stress reducer, helps with cognitive issues and can work as a distraction technique. There are literally hundreds of different crafts to try and we can’t list them all but below are some links to give you an idea of what is available. Use the internet to look for more ideas and to look for craft classes in your area. YouTube has videos showing you exactly how to make things and Pinterest is a great site to get ideas.
We have also included links for hobbies such as photography and gardening and sports all of which are for people with disabilities. If you know of any great groups or organisations that we haven’t listed, please do contact us and let us know. We woud also love to see pictures of your completed craft projects and we will post a selection on the site. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
