Report documents creative and cultural response to those in need during lockdown

The Culture Health & Wellbeing Alliance has published a report and case studies that highlight the scope, breadth and reach of the work that cultural and creative organisations and individuals have been doing since lockdown to reach the most vulnerable.

How creativity and culture is supporting shielding and vulnerable people at home during Covid-19 is based on case studies of almost 50 projects received from 45 organisations in England and Wales, all of whom have created new programmes or adapted existing work to reach people who are shielding or vulnerable in their homes.

Most of the case studies highlight the potential of a collaborative approach with local government, health, and/or third sector partners. CHWA hopes the report makes the case for comprehensive financial and infrastructural support for work that will be as vital to recovery as it has been during lockdown.
