Borderline Arts is the only charity in the UK that focuses specifically on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). We use arts and creativity to raise awareness of this often misunderstood mental health condition & to tackle the stigma that surrounds it. A range of free activities are held including art workshops, theatre groups and art exhibitions.
The Open Centre aims to promote understanding and good relationships between people of different racial, cultural and religious groups. It doesn’t try to eliminate differences between people but encourages understanding and appreciation of each other. It organises visits to various places of worship, such as the Sikh Gurdwara, Hindu Temple, Mosque and Christian churches, as well as cultural workshops and a monthly Open Lunch (vegetarian). A multi-faith volunteer co-ordinator has been appointed.
