London Arts and Health Forum (LAHF)

LAHF LogoLondon Arts in Health Forum works to develop the role of culture in wellbeing and to promote and support arts in health activity across London and nationally.

The organisation is free to join and offers events, a regular newsletter, training sessions, advice and support for artists, architects, clinical staff and service users - basically anyone with an interest in arts in health. LAHF currently has over 5,000 members from London and further afield.

Through its activities, LAHF works to promote, develop and support the understanding of what the arts can do to contribute to a healthy society, in London and nationally, and by so doing to encourage the use of the arts in settings beyond the mainstream. 

The organisation’s key ambition for the next five years is to explicitly widen the focus of activities to encompass all sections of society, at risk of exclusion from arts provision, but for whom access to arts activities could enhance wellbeing, social inclusion and strengthen communities.
