How many times do you hear people say: That book/play changed my life? 

Whether it is life-changing, or mood-altering, the arts can change us. Drama and literature can shake up the way we think about the world – and change our feelings about characters by surprising us into sympathising with them. A play, poem or story can get straight to parts that Power Point cannot reach. 

Hearth harnesses the transformative strength of the arts. We use professional theatre to trigger discussion about how services can be changed or improved.

We offer role play to encourage staff to try out different professional approaches.

We offer creative writing and reading workshops to promote the well being of individuals and groups.
