Art For Care Charity
Buy Art, Give Art

Staying in hospital can be a daunting experience for any of us — but especially so for children. But being able to be around art, to draw, paint, create can really help reduce anxiety in children. It’s even been shown to make an impact on clinical result — it literally heals.

Art for Care supports hospitals. For every order on our site, we send an art pack to a children’s hospital.

Buy Art, Give Art


For every artwork ordered on Rise Art, we give an art kit to a hospital. The kits are designed for young patients, and it’s theirs to use and keep.

Art Heals


We work with hospitals across the UK, including Royal Free London, Great Ormond and Chelsea and Westminster to give artwork and art kits to young patients.

Brighter Environments


We also work directly with hospitals to find and give artwork to Children's Wards and Adult A&E receptions.

Why Hospital Art?


The link between art and healthcare is seems obvious to many of us. But now there’s supporting evidence that shows why and how it helps.

How Creativity Heals?


Research clearly shows how live music and visual arts can greatly reduce levels of anxiety and depression in hospital patients. It can also make significant improvements to health and wellbeing.

Qs with the Expert


Anna Matthams, Visual Arts Officer at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, explains why a creative presence is so vital in a hospital.


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.

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.
