National Alliance for Museums Health and Wellbeing training – from 26 May 2017

Two-day, free training workshops on "Museums as spaces for wellbeing", in six regions across England, designed for museum staff or volunteers who are interested in developing and delivering health and wellbeing work in their organisations.

This training is for people who are interested in exploring how their museum could contribute to people’s health and wellbeing but are not sure where to start. Over the course of two workshops participants will gain the skills and confidence to develop their thinking about this work to support the delivery of health and wellbeing provision within their museum. The training will help attendees to: overcome the barriers to working with the health sector, create opportunities to contact and meet with potential health and wellbeing partners, begin the process of thinking about your museum its spaces, collections and resources and how they can be utilised in this work, explore ways to measure impact and support organisational change.
