Arts and Culture in Every Care Home?

Arts and Culture in Every Care Home? The Baring Foundation, published in September 2021

National Association for Providers of Activities for Older People (NAPA) has been leading on a consultation with the care sector about arts and culture. The question they posed is:

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? 

This consultation was commissioned by the Baring Foundation and conducted by Arts in Care Homes as the first stage in a national (England) conversation about what a daily offer of arts and care homes might look like. The consultation engaged care homes residents, managers, staff & activity coordinators and residents’ families.

The final report, published in September 2021, summarises their findings.
