The CaRE Project is excited to announce their recent achievement: the unveiling of artwork showing the diverse environments and daily workings of 13 healthcare teams in CNWL.

This inspiring display was installed on Tuesday 30 April 2024 and is now on the walls of CNWL Trust HQ, bringing vibrancy and insight to the environment.

Among the showcased teams are those from

  • Horton Rehabilitation Service
  • Pine ward at Park Royal,
  • Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service
  • Kensington and Chelsea Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team

Each artwork offers a unique perspective on the challenges and successes experienced by these dedicated healthcare professionals.

This milestone owes much to the efforts from individuals like Maria O’Brien, CNWL's Chief Nurse and Deputy Chief Executive, whose support made sure the permanent exhibition of the artwork. Gratitude is also extended to Brunel University for generously sponsoring the printing of the images.

Furthermore, sincere appreciation goes out to the 54 healthcare teams involved in the project, as well as Sara Pountney (Head of Rehabilitation and Arts Psychotherapy), Claire Grant (Trust Head of Arts Psychotherapies), and Dr. Ryan Kemp (Director of Therapies) for their unwavering support over the past four years. Special recognition is also given to the Rehabilitation Service line and Richard Mandiveyi, Horton Service manager and Lead Nurse, for their financial support of the CaRE Project Practice Lead position, enabling its impactful contributions on a weekly basis.

The CaRE Project is a creative, collaborative and experiential process for healthcare teams who are at any stage of developing their team. Bespoke creative experiences using arts and embodied exercises are cocreated with each team to enable safe reflection on recent events and to construct shared narratives of team experiences, roles and priorities. This project brings teams
together to inspire new ways of thinking and to collectively envision and cultivate a responsive, resilient, and compassionate team culture.

There is currently some funding to support CNWL teams so if you feel the CaRE Project could be helpful to your team, please get in touch.
