Save the Date! The Care Workers’ Charity Announces Return of Professional Care Workers’ Week 2021
The Care Workers’ Charity are thrilled to be hosting Professional Care Workers’ Week (PCWW) between 6th- 10th September 2021. This year’s event marks the fourth time the event has been run, and the second time it has been organised and led by The Care Workers’ Charity. Last year’s event was held virtually, and the decision was made to do the same this year due to uncertainty around Covid-19 infections, and to ensure the event is inclusive and accessible to a wider audience. Despite the onset of the pandemic last year, our 2020 PCWW Event served as a fantastic focal point for our colleagues throughout the social care sector to come together and discuss Covid-19 response, challenges and achievements- not least the dedication shown by the workforce under exceptional (and often traumatic) circumstances.
We hope to equal, or indeed, surpass the success of the 2020 event this September. This year, Professional Care Workers’ Week will shine a light on the work happening in the social care sector; exploring some of the issues faced by the workforce, as well as challenges impacting social care as a whole. Our aims this year include to highlight and increase wider understanding of what it means to work in social care- and we look forward to hearing directly from social care workers and care managers, as it is important to us to have their voices central in our discussions.
Collaboration is at the heart of Professional Care Workers’ Week, which provides a platform for people to share best practice and experiences, as well as creating an inclusive and creative environment in which to have discussions about topics such as the future of social care, how to retain and build the workforce and the role of technology in care settings. Such collaboration is key to uniting the sector, and is always a primary aim of our event which promises a variety of dynamic panel discussions and engaging workshops.
Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers’ Charity says;
“We are thrilled to announce the return of Professional Care Workers’ Week this September, and hope you will join us as we bring the social care community together to raise much needed awareness of the sector and to share admiration for our incredible workforce.”
