Social care is about supporting people to maintain their independence, dignity and control. You could be supporting people working in a care home, in the local community or from someone’s home.

There’s always a job in your community that you can do to help others. If you like working with people, social care offers a worthwhile job that can turn into a rewarding, long-term career.

A career in social care offers long-term employment prospects, with opportunity for promotion and progression as well as job security.
