Our bespoke programmes
Safe Ground offers bespoke programmes tailored to meet the specific needs of your service or organisation. We consider participants, and prospective participants, our design and delivery partners in this process, and in this way, you are responsible for informing us of the work’s resonance, relevance, and value throughout. We also collaborate with our network of alumni members, community artists, academics, and sector colleagues.
While the Covid-19 pandemic required us to reconfigure many of our usual practices, Safe Ground now delivers services online and designs work with technology in mind.
Services and interventions commissioned for bespoke design with a particular cohort in mind include:
- The Sisterhood – a journal of resources designed to support creative self-expression and complement one-to-one work with girls at Sandwell Youth Offending Service – commissioned by Sandwell Children’s Trust
