Art Health and Wellbeing Lottery Funding

Arts Health and Wellbeing Lottery Funding


About ACW's Art Health and Wellbeing Lottery Funding

The aim of this programme is to support partnerships from across the arts, health, social care and third sectors to provide high-quality creative projects that deliver health and wellbeing benefits for the people of Wales.

Applications should be developed by a partnership/consortium of organisations and artists and must include both a health and arts partner (as well as a nature partner if your project focuses on Arts, Health & Nature). One of the partners will need to assume the lead, submitting the application and acting as the accountable body. 

The Arts Health and Wellbeing Fund is open to partnership bids from across the arts, health, social care, nature, environmental and third sectors. Projects that address one or more of the following health challenges and priorities are eligible to apply:

  • Nature - projects that aim to improve people’s health and wellbeing by increasing their connection with nature through the arts; 
  • Mental health - including tackling loneliness, social isolation and social prescribing schemes that aim to build resilience and support better mental health;
  • Health inequalities - Arts projects designed to address health inequalities by bringing health and wellbeing benefits to people from more diverse and under-represented backgrounds;
  • Physical health and wellbeing – arts projects that support improved physical health or keep people physically active ;
  • Staff wellbeing - within the healthcare and/or arts workforce.
