Hospices are environments where patients, family and carers can often experience high levels of stress, anxiety, grief and apprehension. Our Prints for Hospices scheme seeks to address this by helping to create a warm, homely environment within extraordinary circumstances. The vast majority of the prints in our collection urgently need cleaning and re-framing, to be in a presentable condition for loan. Additionally we are seeking to purchase new prints to enrich the existing collection.


With a re-developed collection we will be improving the quality of the prints that are available to hospices. A more attractive collection will encourage more hospices to participate and more people within hospices to benefit from the comforting qualities that art provides.
