The National Alliance for Arts Health and Wellbeing has set up this website to provide an introduction to the impact the arts can have on health and wellbeing. The National Alliance is made up of organisations from each region of England. Many of these organisations have their own websites with information about arts in health in that area. Several of the organisations distribute regular free newsletters with details of opportunities in arts in health, training and other news and developments. A full list of the organisations involved in establishing the National Alliance is here.
