For five years running, The Lightbox has worked with York Road Project to deliver a series of creative workshops for their clients.
The workshops provide the opportunity for individuals to experience art in various forms, and to develop artistic talents that perhaps otherwise would have gone undiscovered. The aim of the workshops is to boost self-esteem and for participants to achieve a sense of accomplishment, something that unfortunately many of York Road Project's clients feel they lack.
York Road Project was founded by individuals from local churches in response to a lack of accomodation in Woking, particularly during the winter months. The shelter receives a variety of clients from all walks of life, including those who have suffered from the recession.
