The National Alliance for Arts, Health & Wellbeing launched in 2012 and aims to provide a clear, focused voice to articulate the role creativity can play in health and wellbeing.
Supported by Arts Council England, the National Alliance seeks
to act as a hub for information and research on arts and health work in England and further afield
to advocate on behalf of this work
to encourage the use of the arts by health and social care providers, and
to raise standards in this sector.
To acheive these ends, we have developed a Charter for arts, health and wellbeing after broad consultation across the sector. We are also currently supporting the work of a new All Party Parliamentary Group for Arts, Health & Wellbeing and developing this website as an information hub for people working in arts and health and beyond.
