Research shows that active engagement with the arts, culture and creativity is beneficial for the health and wellbeing of us all. The National Centre for Creative Health will play a pivotal role in promoting collaboration to enable creative health to become integral to health and social care and wider systems.
The National Centre for Creative Health was formed in response to the Creative Health report, the result of a two-year inquiry led by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing.
We will support the development of research via our partnerships with University College London, the Royal Society for Public Health Special Interest Group in Arts, Health and Wellbeing and a number of research centres working in relevant fields.
