What is Professional Care Workers’ Week?

18-24th September marks Professional Care Worker’s Week 2023 – a great annual campaign from the Care Worker’s Charity to recognise and raise awareness of the life-changing work that professional care workers do every day.

How we joined in with Professional Care Workers’ Week 2023

On Monday, Agincare Chief Executive Raina Summerson, alongside leading figures in health and social care, took part in a webinar titled ‘The When’.

Raina and the panel discussed different ways of leading teams in different scenarios, and how to support team members every step of the way.

Whilst on Tuesday, Jacqueline Sylver from Furlong Close, our supported living service in Rowde, Wiltshire, participated in a care workers roundtable.

Jacqueline and the panel discussed some of the pressing issues and challenges facing social care today and what changes can be made for the future.

Here’s how our care teams celebrated Professional Care Workers’ Week

Care is so much more than just an occupation, it’s so rewarding to know you make a real difference.
