Are you looking for better links with schools and colleges?

I Care… Ambassadors can help you build connections with local schools and colleges, to help you inspire more young people to work in adult social care.

According to our latest Market Position Statement, 24% of the Adult Social Care workforce is currently aged 55 or over, meaning approximately 6,600 people may retire from the workforce within the next 10 years.

By creating good links with schools and colleges now, we can start to build the workforce for the future.
