Arts 4 Health Derby


Arts 4 health is a programme run in Derby. It is a collaboration between Derby QUAD and NHS Derby City which uses creative approaches to improve health and reduce health inequalities of marginalised groups and communities in Derby city.

Outcomes we are working towards include:

  • Working with young parents to improve self esteem, confidence and also reduce isolation.
  • Supporting those living with HIV/AIDS to promote well being and a sense of community whilst also raising awareness and reducing stigma.
  • Working with young people from black and gay/lesbian/bisexual communities to improve self esteem, aspirations and abilities through involvement in creative activities that support them becoming peer mentors and positive role models.
  • Supporting young people to gain a better understanding of positive sexual health.
  • Using creative arts activities to work with disadvantaged communities on Community Health learning programmes.

This programme is supported by Grants for the Arts - Arts Council East Midlands and the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.
