Caring Creatively Network

If you are working or volunteering with older people or any vulnerable adult in a care setting, in the community or in their own home, the Caring Creatively Network is here to help.

Networking at the Caring Creatively event Nov 2014

As well as this website, we send out a newsletter to all care homes (past editions available to download below) with news, opportunities and ideas to help and inspire you to use creative activities with those you’re caring for. We also hold training and networking events.
