In NHS Services

Arts & Minds works with services provided by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) in Leeds to promote the use of creativity, in inpatient units and community services.

If you work for an NHS service and want to use the arts more, you can download our Creative Pathways document. This gives you all sorts of ideas about all the different ways of bring art into your service. Or get in touch if you’d like some help setting up a creative project or want to find an artist. We’d love to inspire your service to be more creative. Please let us know and we’ll come and visit.

Each year Arts & Minds funds a number of creative projects through our Creative Grants programme. For more information see the Creative Grants page.
