After two years building a strategic relationship between KCC Arts and Culture Service, Artswork and ROH Bridge, a pilot commission was agreed between these three partners and KCC Public Health.

The experience of six cultural providers, their partners and the commissioning group was used to create this toolkit. The commission was part of Kent's large-scale programme to promote the Six Ways to Wellbeing to their communities. Each provider was contracted to work with vulnerable young people in particular targeted areas in Kent, using creative interventions and festivals to help them learn behaviours that would increase their wellbeing.
