Become a friend

Original artworks have a positive effect on the wellbeing of patients and their carers. By becoming a Friend of Paintings in Hospitals you will enable our charity to provide this support to your local community.

Supporting those in your local community

Studies show that artworks have a positive impact on patient recovery times, reduce anxiety and stress and improve staff morale. Through our art library, we offer healthcare providers the opportunity to create better environments, helping the sick feel better and those who are well stay well.

Your annual donation of £25 will help us improve the accessibility of our art library and make sure that patients in your region have access to art, at times when they are most in need of comfort and reassurance.

The benefits of becoming a friend

You will receive quarterly newsletters so that you keep abreast of what we’re doing. You will also receive an invitation to events in your region, so that you can see our work first-hand or meet some of our partner artists.

It will enable Paintings in Hospitals to claim a further 25p from the government for every £1 you give – there is no additional cost to yourself. If you are a higher rate tax payer you may also be entitled to a tax credit.
