Today marks the beginning of July’s Good Care Month, during which we celebrate the dedication and hard work provided every day by the UK’s social care workers. This is a great opportunity for us to share our stories and inspire recognition of social care as a great career path. In return we are helping to boost the morale of our care workers and making them aware that their efforts are not going unnoticed.
With an aging population, and many individuals who have complex needs and require extra care and support, there is now an increasing demand to recruit and retain carers in the social care sector. The Good Care Month campaign will also give us a chance to show the public what it is like to work in social care and help them decide whether care might be the right career choice for them.
Share your stories, photos and videos of the good care you provide on your social media accounts, by using the hashtag #GoodCareMonth.
