Consultation launched into creativity and culture in care sector

What would it require for all care homes in England to offer their residents access to relevant creative and cultural opportunities on a daily basis?

The Baring Foundation has commissioned the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) to lead a consultation asking ‘What would it require for all care homes in England to offer their residents access to relevant creative and cultural opportunities on a daily basis?’

Arts in Care Homes aims to consult as many care settings in England as possible, and has created questionnaires to cover residents, activity coordinators, managers, general care providers and relatives.

The surveys are very quick and easy to fill in and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Deadline for responses is Friday 27 August.

The results will be shared on The National Day of Arts in Care Homes on 24 September.

The consultation really want to hear from as many care settings as possible. So they suggest consider printing out the resident surveys and taking the time to sit with individuals or a small group and discussing the questions. This could be a nice way of planning future activities together and also a useful exercise to demonstrate how you consult with your residents to show to your CQC inspectors!

You can contact alison[at]artsincarehomes.org.uk if you would like to be sent surveys through the post or to have telephone interviews conducted by Arts in Care Homes with staff.

Take part in the consultation, and make sure your voices are heard https://artsincarehomes.org.uk/creativity-and-culture-in-every-care-home/
