Creativity & Innovation

Working at the front line, you are often in the best position to see how things could be done differently and better. Being creative and innovative doesn’t have to mean coming up with grand schemes that will transform the service. Small changes can have a big impact on the lives of the people who you support.

Creativity and innovation may involve:

  • Questioning and challenging the established way of doing things
  • Researching possible solutions
  • Being willing to try things out yourself as well as encouraging colleagues to do so too
  • Taking appropriate risks, with the support of your organisation.

Charlie Allan - East Ayrshire Council

"If you follow the line that the greatest innovation and creativity is needed at the greatest times of change, then we are in that position at the moment. So there is more need… for that now than there has been in decades because of the climate that we are currently in."
