Creative Words for Wellbeing survey

Section: DigitalPeople and NetworksThe ALLIANCEType: News Item Date Published: 8th October 2019

The Scottish Poetry Library, along with LAPIDUS Scotland, are conducting a mapping study of the words for wellbeing landscape in Scotland.

The Scottish Poetry Library, in partnership with LAPIDUS Scotland, has been awarded a grant from the Scottish Library and Information Council’s Innovation and Development Fund to undertake a mapping study of the words for wellbeing landscape in Scotland, and to work with key stakeholders including libraries, health and social care, the creative arts sector and voluntary organisations to develop a national cross-sectoral network with a shared vision and a plan of action for realising this vision.


As part of this process we would like to connect with you as a provider of Creative Words for Wellbeing services, and ask you to complete our survey. 


Firstly we would like to ask you about your experience of Creative Words for Wellbeing to date along with your views on what we could do in the future, to help us to work towards a jointly owned vision and action plan.  Secondly we would like you to tell us a bit about your Creative Words for Wellbeing service so that we can map current Words for Wellbeing projects and initiatives across Scotland.

The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete and to thank you for your time we will invite you to enter a prize draw to win a £50 Hive voucher.  The survey will be open until 14th October 2019.


Here is the link to the survey [This link will take you away from our website.] along with more information about the background and administration of this project.


Please forward this link on to anyone else that this might be relevant to. 

Thank you so much for your time and your input,
