With your help, we enrich the patient and family experience of hospital through art and design projects. From transforming the hospital environment into more welcoming and comfortable spaces with beautiful works of art to providing music and craft activities that improve patients mood, well being and anxiety, the Arts In Health team create a stimulating and uplifting atmosphere for all.

We need to provide over £30,000 every year to the charity funded Arts In Health team at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals so that they can commission local artists to create bespoke pieces that brighten up rooms, arrange craft workshops for patients with spinal inuries, host music sessions for patients with dementia and so much more. By making a donation today you can help us raise enough funds to ensure that fantastic projects like these can continue to benefit our patients.

Charles Clifford Dental Hospital - Paediatrics Department 


This series of artworks were commissioned for the paediatric department of Charles Clifford Dental Hospital to provide a less daunting and enjoyable environment for children receiving treatment.

Patient Activities - Spinal Injuries Centre


The Arts In Health team deliver a varied program of creative activities which helps patients who need to stay in hospital for a long period, patients with dementia or those receiving palliative care. These arts & crafts activities helps to relieve boredom, improve mood and reduce levels of anxiety.

Music sessions


They also organise for a range of professional musicians to come to play on wards. The specialist sessions provide music for patients with cancer  and those with dementia. Music has a calming effect and helps people to feel less anxious. Singing and dancing is encouraged and this is enjoyed by patients and staff.
