Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing (APPGAHW) was formed in 2014 to improve awareness of the benefits that the arts can bring to health and wellbeing, and to stimulate progress towards making these benefits a reality all across the country. This Inquiry is into existing engagement of the arts in health and social care, with a view to making recommendations to improve policy and practice.
- The arts can help keep us well, aid our recovery and support longer lives better lived.
- The arts can help meet major challenges facing health and social care: ageing, long-term conditions, loneliness and mental health.
- The arts can help save money in the health service and social care.
