Do Art - the Art Therapy for Children in Hospitals Fund

November 20th 2018

 

 

The Teapot Trust is a charity founded in Scotland that is now provides UK wide programme of art therapy in hospitals to support the wellbeing of chronically ill children, young people and their families. 

 

Speaking at the Commons presentation of the Trust’s ‘doArt’ campaign Sir Roger Gale has said

 

“ From our own work with PAT ( Pets as Therapy) dogs Suzy and I are acutely aware of the power that  animal therapies have upon children in hospices, hospitals and clinics. Art therapy equally has the power to distract from pain and illness and to inject interest and pleasure into otherwise tormented young lives. I applaud the work that the Teapot Trust is doing and I am encouraging them to extend their outreach to the Rainbow Ward at the QEQM Hospital and to Demelza House.

As the All Party Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing said in a recent report ‘ Engaging with the arts has a signup art to play in improving physical and mental health and well-being ‘ “
