Art for Life is keen to promote the healing qualities of listening to and engaging with music and brings professional and amateur musicians into the hospital to perform for patients and staff. Art for Life has recently been successful in applying for a grant from The Austin & Hope Pilkington Trust. This grant enables us to bring in musicians to visit Care of the Elderly wards every month. Some musicians take on the role of a wandering minstrel whilst others run small workshops and engage with patients on a one to one basis.
