‘Care for the carers’ and other ideas

A participant of Cultural Prescriptions used their £10 challenge [sent to buy materials to support their work and this Action Research] on a scratch card. The card formed part of a ‘care’ package sent to me. An idea that builds on the original packs sent to initiate the project. This version came with plastercine, my favourite crisps, a picture of a pit pony and other goodies. As I scratched the card during our most recent session, we collectively held our breathe in a beautiful poignant moment. Sadly we weren’t lottery winners, but instead we could see the impact of care, creative approaches and connection as powerful tools. Obvious maybe but not always visible and that’s why this research is relevant and timely for the Social Prescribers and their clients too.
