A six week series of creative writing. Facilitated by Wordsmiths – Creative Writing for Wellbeing

A relaxed environment allows creativity to flourish. Every workshop starts with warm-up writing games to chase away those “I can’t write anything” jitters. Participants can enjoy therapeutic writing and are invited to create an anthology of poems or short stories.

Investors in People
19 years continuous recognition.
We currently hold a Silver accreditation.

The 2017 report states:
“100% of people feel appreciated for the work that they do at Pecan. It is a very positive environment in which to work and there is much praise from leaders, managers and colleagues.”

10 years continuous accreditation. The most recent report (2018) states:

“An enduring strength of Pecan is the professional, client focused and empathetic team displaying an exceptional commitment to local people and supporting clients to
progress and achieve their full potential.”

APS (Approved Provider Status)
First achieved by our Moving On project in August 2015. The report states:

“Using a person-centred approach mentors were able to motivate mentees and to provide effective support with an impressive range of daily living issues… The Moving On mentors and management team are clearly very committed in their support of the mentees. Moreover, the project is well embedded in PECAN’s wider community services, such as the careers and employment support, the Foodbank and HOurBank that can also benefit the mentees.”
