Heritage, Health and Wellbeing

This 2020 report from The Heritage Alliance explores the positive impact heritage can have on individual and community wellbeing.

The report examines the existing work in this space, before showcasing more than 30 case studies that cover the breadth of the work in the heritage sector.

Heritage organisations need to continue to consider wellbeing as fundamental in their future organisational strategies as the sector rebuilds after COVID-19. Equally, the health and care sector must harness the unique offer of heritage, and recognise the multiple benefits interacting with heritage can bring. True collaboration - a proper, joined up approach between the heritage and health sectors - is to the benefit of all.
