About Arts at The Wallich

The Wallich is a psychologically informed organisation.

This means we see responding to homelessness as more than a roof over someone’s head.


Diversionary activities, such as arts or sport, are often important tools for responding to, and recovering from, trauma.

Many of the people we support have always been very expressive and creative. Developing outlets for this creativity, as a trauma informed approach to ending repeat cycles of homelessness, addiction and mental health crisis, is a priority for The Wallich.
