The role of the arts in the delivery of adult social care

Skills for Care (SfC)The Baring Foundation and Creative & 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. This visual story gives 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.
