Brief history of the APPG
The APPG was formed in 2014 and is a cross party group of parliamentarians with a shared interest in the field of arts, health and wellbeing. The aim of the APPG is to raise awareness of the benefits that the arts can bring to health and wellbeing and to stimulate progress towards making these benefits a reality across the country.
The APPG led a two-year inquiry 2015-17, which resulted in a report, Creative Health: The arts for health and wellbeing.This is not an official website of the House of Commons or the House of Lords. It hasn't been approved by either House or its committees. All-Party Parliamentary Groups are informal groups of Members of both Houses with a common interest in particular issues. The views expressed on this webpage are those of the group.
The Registered Chair of the APPG, Dr Ben Spencer MP, resigned in July 2021. The APPG will re-form during the new parliament in autumn 2021. If you know that your constituency MP is interested in this area of work, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
