We spoke to a group of care workers in Wales.
This is what they said…
Community Care Supervisor

They are the lifeline their community needs right now.
Andrew delivers training to frontline support workers who provide care and support to individuals with learning disabilities, helping them gain independence and confidence where they need it most.
Care Home Manager
After joining the sector in a part-time role, Lorna has been working in care for over 10 years but wishes she had considered it a lot sooner. Alongside her role as the manager of Meddyg Care Dementia Home in Criccieth, she shares her passion for the sector through her role as a WeCare Ambassador.
Senior Family Worker
Rachel joined the sector as a Classroom Assistant and quickly realised how much she enjoyed making a difference to children’s lives and seeing them develop. She now supports families through Flying Start in Anglesey and shares her passion for working in early years and childcare as a WeCare Ambassador.
