We use visual art and creative activities to improve the health and wellbeing of patients, service users, carers and the public. Established in London in 1959, we now work across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We have developed a diverse art collection of almost 4,000 artworks and, as well as four artwork loan schemes, we deliver art engagement projects and creative activities. We do more than simply put paintings in hospitals. We believe that art has an important role to play in the healing process. Our research is contributing to the growing body of evidence that art improves wellbeing, and we are continually evaluating the impact and reach of our work.
