Inspiring growth, well-being and awareness, through the power of creativity for people challenged by health or social circumstance

Magic Carpet is a charity set up in 1981 to help people gain self-confidence and well-being through participation in the creative arts. We are passionate believers in the power of creativity to help anyone challenged by health and social circumstances. Supported by a dedicated team of talented, trained artists, a steering group of 20 and a board of trustees, we run painting, ceramics, printing, drama and music activities for mental health groups, learning disability groups and community groups. Through the creative arts we aim to nurture:


by encouraging emotional and social development


by promoting resilience, confidence and self-esteem


by appreciating the pressures of life
