Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity’s arts programme delivers a wide range of arts activities for children in the hospital, such as therapeutic music and dance, visual arts, distraction sessions, innovative play and fun. On top of the normal visual arts sessions, the hospital organises artist in residence programmes for children who are kept in isolation.
Arts and craft materials are essential to the continuation of the visual arts activities in the hospital and to ensure children are able to express themselves creatively. It motivates them to improve in all areas of their growth and development and keeps their spirits high while they are receiving treatment in the hospital.

We support over 100,000 children every year from all over Scotland by providing specialist care like spinal surgery, epilepsy surgery, neurology, plastic surgery and keyhole surgery. Through supporting families and setting up our Arts Programme, we have transformed the hospital experience for thousands of children. Hospitals can be scary places for children, so our work allows them to feel less scared and more supported and comfortable.
