The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) are developing a campaign to boost recruitment in the Adult Social Care Sector. This is across all roles in the sector and across all types of Social Care and locations. DHSC are working closely with national bodies and trade associations, including Skills for Care on this.
The Department aim to run this campaign across England in early 2019, you can see more of the campaign imagery here: www.everydayisdifferent.com You may have heard about this from organisations such as Skills for Care, or through trade press.
We’re excited to announce that Norwich has been chosen as one of only 4 locations to host a PR event to boost interest in the campaign, this is fantastic news for the local sector and should really assist with propelling the campaign forward within Norfolk.
Recently appointed in post Emma Hammond is the Recruitment and Retention Coordinator tasked with leading the campaign for Norfolk. Please keep an eye out for further communication in the coming weeks.
Finally, the stories of care workers and users of the care services have been the most powerful campaign so far. If you would like to tell your story about your work in Social Care, or you know of someone who would, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
