Festival of Care 2021

On 31 March 2021 we hosted two virtual sessions of Festival of Care, with the support of many providers and I care… Ambassadors.

The morning session was primarily aimed at schools and colleges whilst the afternoon session was for the general public.

The events showcased several of our care workers, why they are proud to be in their care roles, the values that providers look for when recruiting, different job roles available and care sector career pathways.

The event was hosted by Proud to Care with support from Skills for Care and providers,  making it an informative and helpful experience for all who attended.
