Not a health professional?

If you’re not a health professional, but are affected by a long-term condition or know someone who is, we hope you’ll also find this site useful.

It has been written for, and promoted to, grassroots health professionals – occupational therapists, community and district nurses, GPs, care workers and others – because we think that’s a good place to start to raise awareness of the difference that creative activities can make in people’s lives.

We believe that creative activities should be given as much recognition as exercise for the contribution they can make to people’s health and wellbeing. That can only start if we begin to raise awareness amongst grassroots health professionals  by providing them with practical information and resources.

We will also be providing arts and crafts groups with information about how they can make their activities more accessible to people affected by long-term conditions.

Help us to spread the word …

If you feel you could benefit from singing, dance, painting, drawing or any other creative activity, then help us to spread the word by mentioning this site to the health professionals that you know.
