Become a Friend of Paintings in Hospitals for exclusive benefits including free gifts, limited edition prints, discounts in our shop, and prioritised access to special events.

Your donations keep us going. It’s as simple as that.

Without your support, there wouldn’t be 315 health and social care organisations benefiting from our work. We wouldn’t have 2,173 of our artworks on public display across the country. There wouldn’t be 9,762 patients taking part in our art workshops and activities.

Since 1959, we’ve used art to inspire better health and wellbeing for two million people every year. We’ve come this far because of you, our friends, and now we’d like to make it official!

We’re proud to launch our Friends of Paintings in Hospitals scheme out of gratitude for all the things that we have already achieved with your help, and looking forward as we expand our reach and impact into the future.
