I Matter, You Matter, We Matter

"I Matter" is a special campaign developed by Creative Recovery to mark World Mental Health Day and beyond.  

Inspired by this year's theme, DIGNITY, 'I Matter' is an important reminder that no matter who you are or where you are from. We care.


"We are all just regular people seeking the same thing. The bloke on the street, the woman in the class room, the rich the poor, black , white, gay, straight, you and me - we all just want to know that we matter.
The greatest pain in life is to be invisible.
So keep sharing your stories, help people to see themselves and for a moment glimpse the power to change and the power to triumph.
We all matter."

On Saturday 10th October we'll be joining forces with Barnsley Council to support World Mental Health Day in our creative signature way. Look out for us as we share our special message!

For further information on World Mental Health Day visit the Mental Health Foundation. Or if you would like help and advice contact MIND Rotherham & Barnsley, or the Mental Health Access Team on 01226 707600.

Let this be a daily reminder.

I matter, 

you matter, 

we matter.

Today, tomorrow and always.

Cardboard and Creativity at the Co-op

The humble cardboard box. Usually more entertaining than the present itself!

This is what our next UPLIFT is all about!

This Sunday 27th September, join us at Experience Barnsley as we mark the closing weekend of the current Co-op Exhibition with our special  “Co-op Camp Cardboard Uplift!”

Join us from 11am – 3pm and work with our old friend, James from Responsible Fishing UK to build Co-op inspired cardboard creations. Experiment with projection and photography to make your creations come alive!

With nothing more than a little imagination, cardboard boxes can be transformed into anything and everything, so unleash your imagination and see where it takes you!

Where: Experience Barnsley @ The Town Hall, Barnsley
When:  Sunday 27th September, 11am - 3pm.
