About the platform

Aesop Arts and Society has created this platform. Live Music Now, The Reader and Sing to Beat all helped shape its development. Financial support was given by The National Lottery Community Fund, Peter Sowerby Foundation and Oak Foundation. The aim of the platform is to enable social prescribers and members of the public to find high quality arts programmes that make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing. It is also a place where organisations in Arts and Health can get the support they need to develop their programmes.

Who is this platform for?

This site is designed to enable social prescribers to find high quality arts programmes that provide health and wellbeing outcomes. It will also offer support to the arts and health programmes listed and will be useful for members of the public who wish to find programmes to self-refer to.

Coming soon: Support for Arts and Health Programmes

As part of this website, a community of practice will be created to support the development of the arts and health programmes listed on it. It will focus on sharing best practice; enabling programmes to enhance their artistic content, providing stronger evidence, achieving greater impact and becoming more widely available. There will also be a programme assessment tool to help programmes self-evaluate their development journey.
