Abstract:

The recommendations in this guide result from the Museums on Prescription (2014 – 2017) project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and carried out by researchers at University College London and Canterbury Christ Church University. The guide covers planning, development, facilitation and participation, evaluation.

The project connected older people at risk of social isolation (referred through health services, local authorities, adult social care and third-sector organisations) with partner museums in London and Kent, and researched the processes, practices, value and impact of social prescription schemes with specific reference to museums (including galleries).
