One week in March that will bring together the care community, address the biggest challenges facing the care sector, celebrate the talent of care workers and hold a collective voice for change.
UK Care Week absorbs past healthcare brands (Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo and the Home Care Expo) into an event that is inclusive to the whole care industry.
In November 2021, the National Care Awareness Survey identified recruitment, retention and funding as the biggest challenges faced by the care industry.
The strength of the social care sector is its incredibly passionate and dedicated workforce; from care assistants to CEOs, they are heroes who want to make a difference in people’s lives. Unfortunately, it’s these very heroes that have suffered under the challenges of the industry. A lack of funding has stretched companies thin, leading to a lack of professional development opportunities and an uphill battle in recruitment and retention as other industries pay more and provide better support.
That’s where UK Care Week comes in. From solving staff recruitment and retaining existing staff, to providing staff support, accessing finance, offering training and promoting employee wellbeing UK Care Week hosts everything you need to succeed.
Join us this Summer.
