In 2020, we started work in partnership with community arts venues as a means of widening access to art therapy for children and young people unlikely to take the medical route to find help. This was an important step for Teapot Trust in becoming more accessible in our place and time.

Since then we have developed collaborations with other charities, been commissioned to deliver bespoke art therapy services and encouraged referrals. We have also built research partnerships to create an evidence base for the impact of art therapy as a medical tool.
