GUIDELINES

The Health and Social Care Academy

The Health and Social Care Academy aims to drive fundamental change in health and social care in Scotland.  It has a unique role in doing this through the lens of lived experience, with a focus on relational, rather than organisational aspects of change. 
People across Scotland – including people who access, and those who deliver, support and services – are working hard to change the culture of health and social care and design new approaches.  Much of this is focused on moving away from a ‘fix it’ model of ‘doing to people’, and instead adopting approaches in which we are equal partners and we make the most of everyone’s contributions.
The Competition:

The theme for the competition this year is ‘My Wellbeing, My Future’ and this can be interpreted in any way you choose - the limit is your imagination.

There will be five categories:


  • Poetry
  • Short stories
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Short  films


The closing date for the competition is 5pm on Friday 17th July 2015. We cannot accept any entries received after this date.
