About the charity Artlift provides arts groups that meet the needs of people affected by a range of health issues including cancer, old age, stroke, mental health, chronic pain and dementia. People 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. Outcomes for participants include: reduced anxiety or depression; improved social networks; reduced hospital/GP visits and increased physical activity. We are a small charity (at the moment!) but we help more than 200 people each year to improve their lives. Please consider helping us to achieve our aims!
