Art Brasil are a music and dance group in Newcastle-under-Lyme who aim to support health and happiness in their local community by facilitating artistic and physical activities.
Because of the Prime Foundation’s funding, Committee members were able to expand their programmes by taking health and training qualifications, improving classes on offer.
The group were then able to take these services to residential homes, dementia support groups and community groups – even running exercise and wellbeing programmes online throughout the pandemic.

“The funding enabled us to undertake valuable training in delivering movement and exercise activities as part of our aim to help older adults keep active in body and mind. Communities have been able to participate in activities from chair-based exercise classes to low impact dance to chair yoga. We're extremely grateful to the Prime Foundation for their support in making a lasting impact to our organisation and our community. ”
