Creative partners programme and investment fund

The Trust aims to support voluntary and community organisations to deliver, in partnership with Trust staff, a variety of creative projects to the people who use Trust services and their carers.

The aim of this work is to ensure there is a strong infrastructure of community organisations able to work with the Trust to provide excellent creative projects for the people who access our services.

To do this we have set up two distinct initiatives: Creative Minds Projects and Creative Minds Partners.

The use of creative activities in healthcare has been shown to increase self-esteem, provide a sense of purpose, develop social skills, help community integration and improve service users’ quality of life.

The Creative Minds strategy enshrines how the Trust aims to, by working in collaboration, share good practice and build strong partnerships with community organisations.

We really want to encourage local groups to get involved with Creative Minds. This is a great opportunity to work with the NHS to provide excellent creative projects for people who access our services.
