Professional Care Workers’ Week is back for 2022 taking place from the 12th – 16th September. In order to keep the event as accessible as possible all of the talks and panels will be virtual, so you can join from anywhere. Over the last five years Professional Care Workers’ Week has been a fantastic focal point for our colleagues throughout the social care sector to come together and discuss the key challenges faced, and to take stock of the incredible work of the workforce – looking at the ways we can best support them to maximize quality of care given to those who use the sectors services.
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 those faced by the sector 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 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 PCWW, which provides a platform for people to share best practice, experiences and to have discussions about topics such as the wellbeing of care workers, skills of the workforce, and cost of living crisis and ways to support care workers.
We have a week long schedule of webinars, panels and chats from some of the leading voices in the sector including Vic Raynor – The National Care Forum, Morten Mathieson – Sekoia, Professor Martin Green – Care England, Avnish Goyal – Hallmark Care Homes, Raina Summerson – Agincare, Oonagh Smith – Skills for Care, Jane Townson – Homecare Association and many others.
