The Arts Programme at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity 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. It encourages children to express themselves and allows the physiotherapy department to keep bed-bound children active.
The Arts Programme helps children through their therapies and recovery. The arts activities include many health benefits that allow the children to increase strength and flexibility and recover faster. It gives children the opportunity to be creative, use their imagination and to be social, making sure that they don’t miss out on any normal childhood activities.

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.
