Our Impact


Arts Care in numbers

The period of 2016/17 has been one of high productivity in terms of arts programme/project delivery.
The many on-going challenges of the funding and economic landscape that forever remain close, have only served to make our organisation more determined to find new and innovative ways of continuing to increase outreach and strengthen the delivery of high quality arts. It has therefore been a year where new partnerships, networks and volunteers have been critical to enabling Arts Care to increase outreach and substantial growth into areas of unmet need, attempting to creatively tackle issues that impact on health such as loneliness and isolation.

The clients just love the choir.
Clients often say how “wonderful”
the choir is. As a day care worker I can see a massive increase in the older people’s confidence
