Memorial for Adult Social Care
The past year has been a difficult time for the entire adult social care workforce, and today sees the launch of the Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection dedicated to those working across the adult social care sector.
21 partners representing the adult social care sector have worked together to create this adult social care workforce day of remembrance and reflection, including web based Memorial and Thank You Walls giving people a safe space to remember the people we have sadly lost during pandemic. It is also designed to offer people much needed time to reflect on the vital work the social care sector has done to keep people safe and well.
Despite the huge pressures during the pandemic everyone working across social care continued to show incredible skill and tenacity in supporting those who draw on social care across the UK. This day and the online walls are an opportunity to remember all those in the workforce have made huge sacrifices to provide high quality care, including those who sadly lost their own lives.
What is Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection and when is it?
Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection will be held on the 17th March 2022.
Ahead of the day we have created our Memorial Wall and Thank You Wall where you can leave a tribute to a lost loved one, a thank you to a care worker who has provided vital support to you or someone you know, or a well done to a colleague who worked hard to help keep the people they support safe during the pandemic.
You can share a tribute or thank you to anyone working across social care including those in frontline care roles, managerial roles, administrative roles, maintenance roles, and more.
We will also be encouraging care providers, care workers and everyone who wants to show their support for the social care sector to get involved on the day by arranging activities to provide an opportunity for remembrance and reflection.
Share your tribute or thank you on our wall
