“I attended the No Barriers Here course in March which was absolutely amazing. The course helped me develop skills and understanding in using arts-based approach to advance care planning. Since then, I have carried out a number of community workshops for adults with learning disabilities which have gone really well. It has also been really effective by going into some of the local supported living homes to explore advance care planning together through ‘No Barriers Here’. The project has been so accessible and inclusive for all. It’s been lovely holding the workshops in groups as it has opened up discussions between everyone in terms of what would be important for us when we are at the end of our lives. It really is creating a truly personalised care plan and I am so pleased to be using this approach in my practice to support underserved populations.

“Sharing space and creativity with No Barriers Here renewed my faith that it IS possible to have real and important conversations about what really matters, and that the paperwork can follow but is not the primary aim. No Barriers Here is both astoundingly simple (Who? Where? How? What is important? What is my legacy? And highly complex…we are after all mixed up, interconnected, complicated creatures with rich history, experience, values and beliefs. But the joy of it is the space it holds to be and the play, art, gentle guidance, lack of judgement and dismantling of barriers which create REAL and meaningful conversation. Time to reflect without a tick box, without someone else’s agenda…The essence of safety… a true ACP opportunity which really matters for everyone. Designed by and with those who are truly not heard.”
