Founded in 2004, by residents of Barton Hill in Bristol,  Wellspring Healthy Living Centre is a vibrant charity serving one of the most diverse communities in England.

Wellspring exists to address the health inequalities experienced by residents of inner-city and east Bristol, particularly those who live in the Lawrence Hill ward.

Based in our community-owned, purpose-built premises in Barton Hill, Wellspring is a locally run charity with the majority of board members being local residents.

Participation in art-based activities can improve the health of people who experience low-level stress, anxiety or depression.

We are committed to providing programmes throughout the year for people drawn to the therapeutic arts as a way of improving health and encouraging mental wellbeing.
