“Nothing defines a society more clearly that the way in which it cares for the most vulnerable, the elderly, and those whos care for them” says Norman Lamb the Minister of State for Care and Support. “Good Care Week” is the opportunity to celebrate the massive contribution made by many social care professionals and to focus on the positivity and not as the press do on the few rotten eggs.
” Good Care Week” is the UK-wide annual awareness campaign running from April 28th until the 3rd of May and sees local initiatives come together to create a national movement of celebrating and promoting excellence in social care.
The aim of the week is to raise the profile of social care professions, champion the many thousands of people who provide good care across the country every day and to challenge negative stereotypes.
If you have seen someone you care for receive excellent care from a social care professional please visit the “Good Care Week” Facebook page and let others know. Sharing is caring !!
