Help celebrate the contribution of older people and care staff on 24 September, National Day of Arts in Care Homes #AICH2020.

This year's theme is #CreativeCommunities and we are inviting people to organise an event on the day and share stories of how care settings have kept connected with their communities using the arts, during Covid-19.
