Make It Your Own is a project run by Impact Arts helping Care Experienced Young People to make soft furnishings and consider the interior design of their own homes.

Moving towards independent living is a key life transition for individuals of any age and background, but for care-experienced young people this transition can be particularly challenging and unsettling. Care experienced young people are more likely to struggle as they transition into adulthood, are at greater risk of homelessness, and have difficultly accessing the right housing options, sustaining a tenancy and ultimately making a home for themselves.

Through the project we aim to encourage creativity and DIY projects and help the young people realise their vision for their homes.

Participants on our MIYO project learn skills like sewing, woodworking, upcycling, canvas art, painting, decorating and more. The programme also includes a shopping budget plus inspiration trips.

If you or someone you know is interested in joining our MIYO project then get in touch today to find out more.
