Creative projects and activities matter to us.


Cambridge & Counties Bank love to work with charities. Over the past year with funding awarded from the bank via the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation, Soft Touch Arts has been able to pilot a Creative Enterprise Project, giving new opportunities and support to 24 young people aged 16-25 involved with the charity. Through one to one and group enterprise sessions they have gained skills in making, marketing and selling their art, craft, fashion and photography work.


Find out the different ways you can support our work.


UpSTart uses fun creative activities to engage young people from New Parks, Beaumont Leys, Stocking Farm or Mowmacre Hill who need support.
