The BBC Wales Charity Message for December 2012 is on behalf of Take Part Brecon. There was a broadcast during the week beginning Monday 3 December on BBC Radio Wales.
The Take Part Brecon Community Arts Workshop aims to help various community groups gain confidence through learning new arts and crafts skills.
The charity was formed in 2009 by Pat Cook after she had spent time supporting her son in encouraging people with mental health issues to enjoy art. After being diagnosed with schizophrenia, Desmond Harrison wanted to help himself and others gain confidence and re-integrate into the community.
Now with its own premises, the charity offers workshops in pottery, jewellery making, stone carving, painting and printing.
They have worked with people with learning difficulties, addictions, carers groups, women who've experienced domestic violence and children's groups from the deprived areas of rural Powys.
A Children in Need grant has also helped Take Part Brecon continue with workshops held at the Dering Lines Army Base to help Ghurkha children and wives improve their language skills and integrate into life in Brecon.
