Art For Care Charity
Buy Art, Give Art

Each year, 1 in 15 children are admitted to hospital, a daunting experience for anyone of a young age. Access to visual art and the opportunity to draw and create has shown to greatly reduce anxiety in children and can induce significant differences in clinical outcomes.

Art for Care supports hospital visual arts. With every order on Rise Art, we donate an art kit to a child, helping reduce stress, boredom, anxiety and aid in the healing process.

Testimonials

These are perfect little packs for the children in isolation wards at Great Ormonds Street. We normally struggle to find brand new resources which can be left in their room.

We are really excited about the art packs that have been donated by Rise Art. Doing something creative can focus children’s attention on something fun while they are staying on the ward and drawing has many therapeutic qualities. These packs will really enhance the children’s stay in hospital and we want to say a big thanks to Rise Art and their members for their donation.

Royal Free London

Abbi Spurdle

(Play Specialist, Royal Free London NHS)

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Rise Art to install prints in our A&E department. The artwork selected is perfect for the children, it helps them feel more comfortable in the environment and distract them from treatment at a particularly distressing time. It makes a real difference to enhancing the patient experience.
