What we do and who we do it with
We use movement, music, and talking therapy in innovative
combinations to encourage healing of mind and body. We work with older people, young adults with learning disabilities, mothers with postnatal depression and children in schools.
Working with Children
Make a Move is very proud of the work it does with children. We cultivate the learning independence and attainment of severely disadvantaged primary school pupils across South Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset.
Working with Mums
Make a Move runs regular programmes in and around Bath and North East Somerset, working with mothers with low mood and perinatal depression. The Moving On Up! programme offers music, movement and therapeutic talking sessions to help mothers recover.
Working with Older people
Make a Move is a dementia-friendly charity, working with older people and their carers to improve vitality, self-expression, relaxation, alertness, self-esteem and social connection and alleviate anxiety.
We work with other charities to improve employment and volunteering opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities by helping to improve their social skills and, consequently, their social lives.
Working with Business
We offer creative workshops for companies to support culture change and provide employees with preventative strategies to manage stress. Our unique approach combines both physical and mental aspects of wellbeing.
