Welcome to the webpages dedicated to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Arts, Health and Wellbeing.

Please note that due to rules restricting activity in parliament prior to the general election called for 12 December 2019 ('purdah'), the APPG has been dissolved until a new government has been formed.

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.
