September 8, 2017 in ADPH Updates, Policies, Publications by admin

Please see below a guide for commissioners of health and wellbeing services on partnering with the arts and cultural sector to deliver better outcomes.  It draws on learning from the National Council for Voluntary Organisation’s Cultural Commissioning Programme, which worked with Kent County Council and NHS Gloucestershire CCG to enable innovative partnerships and whole person approaches, reducing the need for costly interventions further down the line.  It includes practical guidance and case studies, covering aspects of physical health, mental health and wellbeing.

It has been produced by NCVO in collaboration with the Association of Directors of Public Health.
