Norfolk Care Careers Week: Care professionals making a difference
07 February 2020
All next week, activities are taking place to celebrate Norfolk Care Careers Week. Norfolk County Council is supporting care providers to promote the many different roles a career in care has to offer. The week will run from Monday 10 February to Sunday 16 February.
Cllr Bill Borrett, Cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Public Health said:
“This year, we are launching Norfolk Care Careers Week to highlight the great work that care providers and, most importantly, what their staff do across the county 24/7, 365 days a year.
“Working in social care can offer an enormous sense of personal achievement, knowing you’re helping and supporting others.
“There are a huge array of opportunities for progression and professional development, we want people to realise there are many different pathways to a career in care, be it home care support, nursing, residential care, dementia care, learning disabilities or mental health.”
Anna Morgan, MBE, Director of Workforce, Norfolk and Waveney Health & Care Partnership said:
“Our leaders across health and care have made a commitment to make Norfolk and Waveney the best place for staff to work.
“If you want to make a real difference to someone’s life, particularly when they are vulnerable, then this is the best time to consider a career in social care. We can offer a wide range of learning and development opportunities with clear career progression.
“All of our partners within the system are collaborating together to develop new roles, new ways of working, enhanced skills and shared training opportunities to address the current and future workforce challenges.”
