The Care Workers’ Charity launches Professional Care Workers Week

by Lisa Carr

On the 1st – 4th September 2020, virtually or in person, all parts of the social care sector will come together to celebrate care workers and make them feel special and appreciated during Professional Care Workers Week 2020 (#PCWWeek20).

The social care workforce is one of the largest in the UK; those 2 million people deserve to be recognised, respected and appreciated. Professional Care Workers Week dedicates one week to doing exactly that. Designed to boost the perception of social care in the public consciousness, bring acknowledgement to care workers, and show that they are appreciated.

The importance of this event has never been more apparent. The way care workers have embraced and overcome the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic is testament to the integrity they possess when caring for people. Which is why this year the theme will focus on ‘Respect and Recognition’.

Karolina Gerlich, Executive Director at The Care Workers’ Charity says: “Professional Care Workers Week is an opportunity to demonstrate the best that social care has to offer. Join us during Professional Care Workers Week during the 1-4th September 20 and recognise the dedication, hard work and resilience care workers bring to their important and essential role as caregivers by using tweeting about your appreciation of care workers using the hashtags #PCWWeek20 and #R&R”

Joining The Care Workers’ Charity in this special event will be industry leaders and influencers speaking about topics concerning the future of social care during a series of webinars1

We would like to thank our event sponsors: Bevan Brittan, Towergate Insurance, Care Shop, Delivered Health Solutions, Slater and Gordon, Sekoia and Avery Healthcare. Everyone at the CWC would like to thank our sponsors for their continued support.
