Arts and Health
I believe in the power of poetry and creative writing to keep us well, heal and support longer lives more deeply lived..
I am a trained coach and have used poetry with individuals and groups.
I volunteer for Alzheimer's Research UK Dementia Voice project and Alzheimer's Society accelerator programme. I am a judge and expert advisor for the Longitude Prize on Dementia.
I am a supporter of the National Centre for Creative Health and a member of the National Alliance for the creative arts in health and care and The Social Prescribing Network. I also am active member of Lapidus - the international writing for wellbeing community.
