About this cause
Saltwater Creations CIC provides a range of face to face, experiential, real life story-telling workshops and activities designed to empower and develop individuals (mainly young people) mental and physical wellbeing, resulting in positive changes in behaviour, performance and productivity. A passionate and personable approach based on first-hand experience of overcoming adversity. We share real life experiences to show how people can still lead a fulling life, despite facing adversity. The presenters talk about their achievements after their adversity, (sudden loss of a loved one) and how challenges can be overcome and open up new adventures and opportunities.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The workshops enable a chance for young people to share their challenges openly and to support their friends. We do pebble painting in the workshops - empowerment stones and these are decorated with a message and then left in places for people in the community to find with messages on to help spread kindness and positivity.
