Tonic Health is charity community hub for health and wellbeing, situated close to Spalding town centre. It houses a complementary therapy clinic, hosts a number of exercise classes, and supports a range of community-based projects such as Little Miracles, Going Forward, Shaw Trust and Double Impact along with it's own in-house run projects such as Austic Led, FOCUS Dementia Groups and Advocacy Support to name just a few. The facilities within the building are also available for public hire.
Tonic Taster Arts are a programme of short workshop courses of different art forms, delivered to the dementia patients at Tonic 44 centre in Surfleet, giving them ‘tasters’ of the art forms.
As we come out of lock down and start to recommission some of the project strands, we have been listening to people and service providers relate the need to get back to social activity, especially the most vulnerable and most isolated, for their physical and mental health and general wellbeing.
We have solid evidence of the value of arts activity as a catalyst to bring people together, so in response to the opportunity to apply for Mental health Promotion fund, we have a new strand of activity with Tonic Health taking place in their Spalding and Surfleet Community café.
