How the arts are being used in social services in Scotland

We know that creativity can change lives for the better and our aim in conducting the survey was to understand how the creative arts are being used, and the impact this type of work can have for people supported by services and for staff. As such, the purpose of the work was to capture some of the experiential knowledge held by professionals working in this area, to share this knowledge more widely across the sector and to provide inspiration to others. 

The role of arts in social care

The arts continue to gain recognition as a vital part of society. In particular, there is increasing acknowledgment that the arts can offer practical and innovative ways to impact on the positive factors that nurture health and wellbeing (Seligman, 2011).
