Create Paisley (CREATE) is an innovative youth arts project aiming to reduce loneliness and inequality.

Their goal is to increase this support for young people, offering them more opportunities that fit in line with their vision to see ‘young people transformed through creativity, community, confidence and finding their voice’.

In 2012, CREATE was constituted as a charity and increased the offering to include regular arts workshops, youth mentoring, a youth forum and fortnightly drop-ins. Through a mix of programmes, young people are supported to develop skills, support networks and strength to succeed and fulfil their ambitions.
