What We Do

PeopleSpeakUp is a social, mental-health,  arts, health and wellbeing charity.

We connect communities through storytelling, spoken word, creative writing and participatory arts.

We offer workshops, training, events, volunteering and conversations.

Through artistic exploration we aim to:

  • Stimulate, engage and create
  • Build confidence
  • Cultivate intergeneration understanding
  • Promote health and wellbeing through creative practice
  • Generate workshops, performances and opportunities for individuals and communities
  • Tackling loneliness and isolation
  • Measure social impact in our local and wider community
  • Investigate the gaps in provision within current arts and wellbeing practices in the UK and nationally.

We also provide volunteering opportunities for future employment.

We welcome collaboration with health boards, local councils, arts organisations, charities and support networks.

Our current projects are in partnership with local care homes in Carmarthenshire, The Alzheimers Society, Carmarthenshire Theatres, Llanelli and Carmarthenshire County Counci, Hywel Dda, The Tenovus Cancer Care Charity and Macmillan.

If you would like to collaborate, participate or have an idea to improve health and wellbeing in your community then please get in touch.
