The Brain Charity’s free Brain Changer Arts Project workshops pair the skills of an occupational therapist with a dedicated arts and crafts leader.
Crafting activities assist with dexterity, hand-eye coordination and memory. Sessions are held in a friendly and fun environment and no prior experience is necessary.
They run in schools, nurseries and community settings across Merseyside.
All of our experienced workshop leaders are DBS checked and will ensure sessions, whether physical or virtual, are run in a safe and professional manner.
Parents and carers are welcome to join too.

In The Brain Changer Arts Project’s first two years:
- More than 80% of participants experienced progress with hand and arm movement
- Nearly 100% said their confidence improved as a direct result of the sessions
The Brain Charity also has staff based at Liverpool Women’s Hospital to support pregnant women and new parents of babies with neurological conditions, genetic illnesses and brain injuries.
The Brain Changer Arts Project has been generously funded by BBC Children in Need since 2019.
