New national alliance for Culture, Health and Wellbeing launches today
We are pleased to announce that the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance are one of the founding strategic members of the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance.
This new alliance brings together the National Alliance for Arts, Health and Wellbeing with the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing and involves 50 leading cultural organisations from across England.
It will develop and promote the role of arts and culture in supporting the country’s health and wellbeing; provide training, resources and events; and develop understanding of how participating in cultural activities can help individual and community health and wellbeing.
For many years, organisations around the country have been working in hospitals and care homes, in museums and galleries and community spaces creating cultural opportunities for people living with physical and mental ill health. Now, for the first time, these organisations are coming together to provide a shared and collective voice for this work.
The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance is a free membership organisation – join up here.
