Event Details

This session is an opportunity for museums and heritage organisations to find out more about the health & well-being agenda and how museums can play a vital role in supporting it (the Museums Association has already carried out a lot of work in the area as part of their Museums Change Lives campaign).

Throughout the day, museums will be supported to: identify where they are already supporting issues around health & well-being in their day to day work; where there is funding to enable you to do more; how you can monitor the impact on people's lives; and to network with local health providers.

   Research Director, Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology, Canterbury Christ Church University

Paul will provide an overview of the national health and wellbeing strategy and why this is important to museums and how museums can consider responding. He will also discuss partnership development between museums, health and social care and charities.
