Integrated Medical Alliance (IMA)

We advocate for a new attitude to healthcare: one which forges partnerships across society, emphasises prevention and a multi-faceted approach and empowers a healthier, happier population.  

We think everyone should be part of the conversation about health, not just a select professional elite.

Compassion in Politics

A cross-party organisation working to put compassion, inclusion, and cooperation at the heart of politics.

Compassion has the power to change politics for good. From inequality to homelessness, online abuse to refugees dying at sea - imagine how these issues would be tackled if compassion was the main motivation of decision-makers.

National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH)

www.ncch.org.uk

We believe everyone has creative potential and that creativity can lead to healthier lives and communities. Active engagement with the arts and culture, whether through our own creative practice or through our enjoyment of the creative practice of others, is beneficial for the health and wellbeing of us all. 

We are particularly keen to work in the space between the established worlds of arts, culture, health and social care, exploring how co-production and collaboration can provide new ways of thinking about the intersection between our creativity and our health.
