This guide forms part of advisory pack produced by PraXis to support healthcare staff, managers and their partners to deliver and sustain participatory arts and health projects in delivering specific public health outcomes.

The Guide has been developed as a result of a partnership between Dudley PCT, Creative Health CIC and Arts Council England. During 2011 the Partnership developed a programme of arts and health projects. Each project contributed to reducing health inequalities by meeting specific public health outcomes. Projects focused on supporting PCT staff and their partners to engage with a range of people and communities in a different way.
