The Arts for Health Partnership Programme in West Cork is an inter-agency collaboration between Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre, HSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, Cork Education and Training Board, and Cork County Council. The programme provides year-round cultural and creative activities for residents of community hospitals, older people attending day care centres, and their family carers across West Cork.

The Strategic Plan 2023-2028 is aimed at improving the lives of older people and family carers in West Cork by nurturing and developing participants’ creative interests with one-to-one and group sessions in art, dance, storytelling, filmmaking, music and more.

The strategy focuses on increasing access to the programme and developing its artistic offering, providing an inclusive way of working to support the increasing number of people living with dementia across communities. The strategy also outlines actions to include creative supports for family and professional carers in healthcare, in the community and at home.
