Women and Children's Creative Health Handbook: Wellbeing by Design.

Women and Children's Creative Health Handbook: Wellbeing by Design. Commissioned by Jo Ward for The Improving Me Programme
This publication came about because of what can only be described as an impulsive phone call to Dr Daisy Fancourt after her inspirational lecture at the second international social prescribing conference (London 2019). The Improving Me Partnership was determined to develop ‘something’ which addressed what can only be described as a gaping hole in resources to support a prevention focus predicated on asset-based working, which was just focused on women and children, that embodied a life course approach, that enshrined an unrelenting focus on health inequalities and addressing these where they start – in the womb. And which opened a door for the consideration of how a creative health approach could both address the need for prevention and promotion and treatment and management innovation simultaneously. Through collaboration and partnership we now have that resource and we want to share it with you.
