Care and support workers have a challenging and rewarding job that is different every day. Over the past months, care workers have shown how exceptional they are. During a period of global uncertainty, the most vulnerable members of our society have been cared for in care homes, supported living facilities and in their own homes.
The social care workforce is one of the largest in the UK; those 2 million people deserve to be respected and recognised for their work. Professional Care Workers Week has been designed to bring the sector together and to appreciate the outstanding efforts of care and support workers.
Across the four days, a series of webinars and panel discussions will be available, free of charge and open to everyone. An array of speakers will be sharing their expertise and charisma on a range of exciting topics.
The importance of this event has never been more apparent. The way care workers have embraced and overcome the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic is a testament to the integrity they possess when caring for people. Which is why this year the theme will focus on Respect and Recognition.
The week is sponsored by Sekoia, Slater and Gordon, Avery Healthcare, Care Shop, Bevan Brittan and Towergate Insurance.
