Newcastle CAREGiver featured in national art exhibition
Fantastic CAREGiver Elizabeth Contreiras, 39, from Newcastle, recently featured in an art exhibition in London at the House of Commons hosted by Care Minister, Caroline Dinenage.
The exhibition was part of the Department of Health and Social Care’s recruitment campaign, ‘Every Day is Different’ which aimed to highlight care as a great sector to work in. The campaign also celebrated the relationships between the remarkable workforce and those they support.
The event was the culmination of the recruitment campaign and took place in the Churchill Room at the House of Commons. The photographs displayed at the event, including Elizabeth’s, showcased the diversity of roles across adult social care, and the people who are making a difference every day in this vital sector.
Elizabeth was asked to take part in the campaign by participating in a professional photo shoot, where she shared a trishaw with her client Margaret. She was also part of a case study that highlighted the importance of choosing a career in care.
Andrew Fullerton, co-owner of Home Instead Senior Care Newcastle Upon Tyne, was lucky enough to make the trip to London with Elizabeth. He said, “Elizabeth, our amazing CAREGiver really did us proud, representing Home Instead at the national art exhibition in London. It was a special day for her to share her dedication and love of caring for others.”
Elizabeth has a real passion for care work, and was delighted to be part of such a wonderful campaign. She said, “Joining Home Instead was one of the best decisions I have ever made the staff and clients are amazing. I have a real passion for care work and I love the feeling of making a difference to my clients and seeing the smile of their faces. I would urge anyone to consider a career in care.”
She continued, “It was fantastic to share the experience with the other people who featured in the photographs as well as sector organisation representatives and the Minister of State for Care, Caroline Dinenage. I am going to remember this experience for a very long time.”
