ARTLIFT is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) that provides a 'bridge' between the arts and creativity and the health sector, by designing evidence based creative programmes that meet the needs of people affected by a range of health issues.


Our workforce - Artlift works with artists that challenge themselves, are professionally trained in art form and well networked across the arts community. All Artlift artists are trained in Safeguarding and undergo regular Clinical Supervision. 

Partnership with the health sector - Artlift designs and develops all its programmes in close consultation with health professionals, who refer participants.

Sustainability - All participants who take part in any Artlift programme have the opportunity to set up their own peer led arts group.

Arts on Prescription across Gloucestershire and Wiltshire - NHS patients with a range of long term health conditions are referred by their health professional (e.g. GP, District Nurse, Community Mental Health team) for a course of 8 weeks of creative sessions with a professional artist.
