Research and evaluation

An ever-growing body of evidence is helping to describe and demonstrate the benefits of creativity and culture on communities and individuals' health and wellbeing. Many of us who work in this area also want to evaluate and research our own work. This area is to help you find what's already out there, and understand how you can add to the evidence.

Toolkits and factsheets

Our toolkits section contains information and ‘how to guides’ which will help you develop your own proects and programmes. These include guidance on evaluation, commissioning, fundraising and a glossary of arts and health terms.
