The Craft Café is a social creative venue where older people can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with their community.  Activities are intended to foster the intrinsic joys of creativity, artistic expression and learning.

It seeks to reduce isolation and loneliness experienced by older people; to enable them to make positive lifestyle changes associated with ageing and ultimately, to bring about a better quality of life.

As the number of older people in the country increases, more are living alone and are more socially isolated.  Social isolation and loneliness are consistently associated with reduced health and wellbeing and there is emerging evidence to demonstrate the positive relationship between active engagement in the arts for older people boosts both their physical, mental and social wellbeing.
