Over the years we have welcomed many individuals and groups who experience spiritual or social disempowerment. We have learnt that time spent at Minsteracres can give a rare sense of belonging and is greatly valued.

Most of our outreach work is done through partnerships. Over the years we have worked with organisations that care for people in recovery from substance misuse, organisations who support refugees and asylum seekers and in recent years we have worked closely with Freedom from Torture North East. That partnership led in 2012 to a remarkable exhibition of paintings and sculptures from two of their clients, both professional artists. One of them, Fetlework Taisfay, continues to visit Minsteracres as our artist in residence.

We are looking to develop new partnerships with clients who could benefit from the peace and space Minsteracres has to offer. Please contact our outreach coordinator Liz Holmes if you would like to know more about outreach at Minsteracres.
