Celebrating the work of professional care workers

Next week it's (1st – 4th September) is Professional Care Worker’s Week when the social care sector will come together to celebrate and recognise care workers and the fantastic contribution they make to the lives of so many people.

Our CEO, Martin Jones, is a Trustee of The Care Workers’ Charity who organise the week. Martin will be taking part in a (virtual) panel discussion on Tuesday 2nd to talk about the really important issue of recruitment and retention in home care and look at how care workers have risen to the challenges presented to them during the pandemic.

Speaking about Professional Care Worker’s Week, Martin said, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to take an active role in the Week. Our CAREGivers and carers across the UK have, without doubt, gone above and beyond during the pandemic.

“There has never been a better time to celebrate and recognise the work that they do.”

The overall theme of the week is ‘Respect and Recognition’.
