We are a Scottish arts-in-health charity whose aim is to improve the experience of people in hospital and in hospice, residential and respite care by using the performing arts to encourage communication, interaction and laughter.
We achieve our aim through two specialist creative programmes; The Clowndoctors, who work specifically with children, and The Elderflowers, who work with ladies and gentlemen living with Dementia.
These performing arts activities engage the imagination of our participants through individually-tailored therapeutic artistic interventions, improving the hospital experience and encouraging communication, interaction and laughter.
We run open and inclusive programmes, meaning that we do not focus specifically on one illness or disability, and work with people of varying ages and social backgrounds.
We raise smiles all across Scotland, from Inverness down to the Borders.
The company was founded in 1997 and is a world leader in hospital clowning organisations.
