Skills for Care (SfC), The Baring Foundation and Creative and Cultural Skills,
commissioned UK-wide research exploring the role of arts in the
delivery of adult social care with a particular emphasis of workforce
development. We’ve produced this visual story to give you a flavour of
the key messages from the report.
Overall, the reviewed evidence demonstrates the considerable physical
and psychological benefits of using arts with people in receipt of
social care. The use of arts can also deliver profound benefits for the
social care workforce, in particular challenging preconceptions on the
abilities and talents of people with a range of conditions or needs.
