Professional Care Workers’ Week will return next month to shine a light on the important work happening in the sector.
Hosted by the Care Workers’ Charity, the event will take place between 6-10 September and will be held virtually due to uncertainty around COVID-19 infections, and to ensure the event is accessible to a wider audience.
The event will explore some of the issues faced by the care workforce, as well as the challenges facing the sector as a whole.
The aim this year is to highlight and increase wider understanding of what it means to work in social care.
Professional Care Workers’ Week will also provide a platform for people to share best practice and to have discussions about topics such as the future of social care, how to retain and build the workforce and the rise of technology.
Karolina Gerlich (pictured), chief executive officer of The Care Workers’ Charity, said: “We are thrilled to announce the return of Professional Care Workers’ Week this September, and hope you will join us as we bring the social care community together to raise much needed awareness of the sector and to share admiration for our incredible workforce.”
