Call for culture case studies relating to early years and new mothers

Deadline: 16 December 2019

A new National Social Prescribing Special Interest Group is calling for case studies focused on activity to support the early years and 1001 days agenda and/or new mothers. The case studies will be used to compile a national handbook for commissioners on how culture can promote wellbeing in these contexts.

This project builds on and links to the recently published WHO Synthesis Report by Daisy Fancourt and Saoirse Finn, highlighting the contribution of the arts to wellbeing. 

The publication will encompass:
1. Pregnancy, labour and birth
2. Newborn and early years (1001 days)
3. Children and young people.

The Special Interest Group is particularly interested in work responding to health inequalities for women and children.
