Residents in care/nursing homes and members of day centres need help to maintain active minds and bodies – which in turn adds a sense of ‘well being’ to their lives.

About us

First Taste is the name of a charity that promotes arts educational and stimulative activities for frail older people in nursing and residential care homes and day care centres principally, but not exclusively, in the Derbyshire Dales. This small, local charity was started in 1997 by six people committed to improving opportunities for learning in residential and day care settings. All had personal experiences of older relatives in care. Their vision was to bring into homes qualified arts tutors to conduct interactive creative sessions and to encourage the development of the holistic skills of homes and day centres care staff.
