Opportunities in Care

Care workers provide an essential service.  As a care worker it’s often the small things that you do, and the way you do them, that could greatly contribute to someone’s wellbeing and quality of life.

There are opportunities for you to support a wide variety of people, including older people, disabled people, people who use mental health service or people with a learning disability. You could be visiting people in their homes, helping them stay an active part of their community or looking after them in residential homes.

Social care is an increasingly innovative and partnership-based sector. There are lots of opportunities for you to develop your career. You will also develop helpful experience of working alongside a range of health and care professionals including social workers, nurses, therapists etc.
