Our vision is to provide a supportive environment that distracts through creative activities, and build wellbeing for those experiencing illness, trauma and loss. We do this through our CanBead jewellery-making and beading workshops. We collaborate with host agencies including Southland Help, the Stroke Foundation, MS Society, Cancer Society and the Invercargill Loss & Grief Centre.
Make a difference to the lives of people experiencing illness, trauma or loss. Support our free creative therapy service by sorting donated beads, to make ready for workshop trays and the bags of beads participants receive.
