Independent Arts' Creative Futures pilot project in 2013 was funded by the Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Innovation Grant Programme, with additional contributions from the W.G. Edwards Charitable Trust and The Clothworkers' Foundation.

During the course of the year 34 volunteers delivered 962 one-to-one sessions to 49 isolated care home residents on the Isle of Wight who were aged between 58 and 101 years.
