NAPA is leading on a consultation with the care sector about creativity and culture. The question we would like to pose 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? 

Read more about the consultation by visiting the Baring Foundation website.

We would like to consult as many care settings in England as possible. In order for the views of your residents, staff and relatives to be heard.

Please share the following online questionnaires with the relevant audience:

  1. Residents Survey
  2. Activity Co-ordinators Survey
  3. Managers Survey
  4. General Care Providers Survey (all staff)
  5. Relatives and Friends Survey

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 of this consultation will be shared on The National Day of Arts in Care Homes, 24 September 2021.

  5. Relatives and Friends Survey

We really want to hear from as many care settings as possible. Please 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!

Please contact us if you would like to be sent surveys through the post or to have telephone interviews conducted by us with staff.

Please make sure your voices are heard. Thank you for your support!

We will also be compiling best practice case studies. If you would like to find out more or discuss the possibility of getting involved, please contact us.
