Academic Research

Artlink, Cherry Road Learning Centre, Dundee University & PAMIS – a year long independant study of  work between artists, individuals with complex disabilities, careworkers and families.

The aim of the research is to increase our understanding of how to plan an improved person-centred service; how we can use and share resources more effectively; what particular approaches enhance quality of life; what contributes to reducing family and carer stress levels and what practice contributes working together effectively to achieve these outcomes.

One example of this work is a project which asks staff to focus on the detail of people’s responses to interaction or environment.


This programme is funded by Health Improvement Scotland and is the first if its kind.
