Skills for Care


This April we’re #CelebratingSocialCare and the incredible people who work in care, and we’d love you to join us in our celebrations.

At Skills for Care, we celebrate social care year-round but throughout April we’re going to be celebrating a little bit louder, and encouraging everyone to join in.

We want everyone to take some time this month to recognise the vital work of the social care sector and the important impact that people working in social care have on our communities and people who draw on care and support.

We’ll be sharing good news stories from the sector across our website and social media channels (LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook). You can get involved by sharing your own good news stories and shoutouts on social media, or simply sharing your support for #CelebratingSocialCare and all the people working in the sector and those drawing on care and support. 

Get involved

You might want to:

  • shout out your colleague, team, or manager for their great work or a recent achievement
  • share a successful initiative that your organisation has been working on
  • share some of the exciting activities that you’ve been doing lately as a team or with the people who you support
  • share some feedback from the people who you support or their relatives about the impact your care and support has had in supporting them to do the things they love
  • shout out yourself for all your hard work
  • share what you love most about working in social care
  • shout out the people who you support
  • or say thank you to everyone working in social care for everything they do.
