Norfolk County Council is supporting care providers to promote the many different roles a career in care has to offer and raising awareness of the great work that care staff do across the county round the clock and throughout the year.

Councillor Bill Borrett, Cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Public Health said:

“Working in social care can offer an enormous sense of personal achievement, knowing you’re helping and supporting others. There are a huge array of opportunities for progression and professional development; we want people to realise there are many different pathways to a career in care, be it home care support, nursing, residential care, dementia care, learning disabilities or mental health.”

Anna Morgan, MBE, Director of Workforce, Norfolk and Waveney Health & Care Partnership said: “Our leaders across health and care have made a commitment to make Norfolk and Waveney the best place for staff to work.

“If you want to make a real difference to someone’s life, particularly when they are vulnerable, then this is the best time to consider a career in social care. We can offer a wide range of learning and development opportunities with clear career progression.

“All of our partners within the system are collaborating together to develop new roles, new ways of working, enhanced skills and shared training opportunities to address the current and future workforce challenges.”
