WeCare Wales team at the Great British Care Awards

WeCare Wales wins regional workforce development award at Great British Care Awards

The ‘Introduction to social care’ team has won the workforce development award at the regional round of the Great British Care Awards.

The team was nominated because of its successful programme offering training to people thinking of starting a career in social care.

Introduction to social care is a free online training programme for anyone over 18 interested in a career in social care.

It covers the essentials needed to start working in social care, such as communication, keeping people safe and working practices.

Winning this award has given our ‘Introduction to social care’ team a great boost.

We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to work in social care, which is such a rewarding career.

Over the past year, the team’s helped more than 500 people get basic training in social care to kickstart their careers.

This award highlights how hard the team’s worked to make that happen.”
Sam Thomas, WeCare Wales’s Engagement and Development Lead

The Great British Care Awards aim to raise the profile of social care by highlighting the people who really make a difference.

Through regional ceremonies, the awards celebrate excellence in social care in Wales, Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.

As a regional finalist, the ‘Introduction to social care’ team will find out if they’ve won the national workforce development award at the final in Birmingham next month.
