Care Workers' Charity support Professional Care Workers’ Week

During the first week of September the Care Workers’ Charity called on the social care sector to come together (virtually) to celebrate Professional Care Workers' Week.

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 were made available, free of charge and open to everyone. An array of speakers shared their expertise and charisma on a range of 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 testament to the integrity they possess when caring for people. Which is why this year the theme will focus on Respect and Recognition.
