About Little Bird SOS

Where

Little Bird SOS works with individuals from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.  There is scope to expand this into the East Midlands and further, to enable better lives for more people.

Who

Little Bird SOS helps people with direct or indirect experience of mental health issues.  Support can be given to individuals who self-refer or are sign-posted through their GP, hospital or caregiver.  We also work with group referrals from healthcare and voluntary professionals as our service is used by commissioning groups in clinical settings.

What

Experienced staff and trained volunteers deliver art and craft projects and workshops to small groups of individuals.  Workshops create craft items using a range of environmentally sourced and recycled materials.  Crafting techniques are used to create inspiring distinctive items for keepsakes or for sale.

Evidence

Little Bird SOS has been running since 2011 and has provided life changing support to many individuals to improve their mental health and wellbeing.  All our work is researched and evaluated by trained professionals to obtain both quantitative and qualitative information.
