Coverage Care Commission


A new commissions begins.


Expectations are high, where do we start?


We had worked with Coverage Care previously when New Fairholme opened in Oswestry, so we had an understanding of how we can work together and knowledge of each others working processes.

Of the many reasons we have been keen to work with you, this incudes;


  • An excellent experience of working with you when we transitioned services from Fairholme to the New Fairholme

  • Your values and your sensitive methodology in engaging with service users and staff

  • The genuine enthusiasm and professionalism of EVERYONE involved in the work of Designs in Mind

  • Your wonderfully innovative and creative [art] works which surpasses any reasonable expectation of quality

We are blushing, but this is the feedback we like and aspire to on all our commissions. 



So here we are again. Coverage Care set to work in early 2016 to build a new care home in Shrewsbury, Montgomery House. This was our brief...


Something that involves the residents and contains images that could trigger memories

It was inspiring going with Jo to Coverage Care; being in on the first discussions, the first part of the process of looking at a new commission

We started with a chat and drawing with residents and family members who would be moving in to the new home. We played music, chatted 1:1, worked in groups and used lots of imagery of the River Severn to inspire conversations, reflections and memories of this place. 



We then set to work to design and make 6 string ward signs, 30 felt wall hangings and a 40m mosaic path.
