Professional Care Workers Day

When Wednesday 4th September 2019, all day
Professional Care Workers Day

For too long, social care has been undervalued: despite delivering amazing care in a difficult economic climate, struggling for political attention alongside Brexit, and being treated as a support system to the NHS. It has been undervalued despite delivering against all odds, often at the personal cost to staff, and requiring the sacrifices care workers have to make to look after people well.

Delivering care is a skilled and unique profession that deserves recognition, respect, and celebration. The skills and expertise care workers deliver every day make a significant difference to the lives of people they work with and support. This is not always fully appreciated or understood until people experience this care first hand.

We're proud to work in social care

To celebrate Professional Care Workers Day we will be shouting out loud how proud we are to provide, receive and support social care. What we do really makes a difference to people's lives and that is something that we are keen to celebrate.

We'll be hosting 'proud as punch' lunches to share why we're proud of what we do. Join in the celebrations by hosting your own lunch and by sharing with us why your proud in your role. You can send pictures and comments to or share to our social media. Don't forget to share with the National Association of Care & Support Workers (NACAS), who organise the event @NacasUK #ProfessionalCareWorkersDay

Wellbeing Festival
