Panel Discussion: Driving the Positive Change for the future of Care

22 Mar 2023
Keynote Stage

In November 2021, the National Care Awareness Survey was launched by the UK Care Week team, with input from over 400 social care professionals in the UK. The purpose of the survey was to highlight the pressures and concerns in the social care industry by giving care professionals a platform to raise their voices and to raise the profile of social care. The survey identified recruitment, retention, funding, recognition, and wellbeing as the biggest challenges facing the care industry.

This year marks the second edition of the National Care Awareness Survey Report, completed by over 600 social care professionals in the UK. In this panel discussion, hear from the report's partners and sponsors on what we have learned from the results this year and how we can learn from this to better the future of the care sector.
