Care Hero

Hereford Times: Care Hero

Hereford Times: Hereford Times' Health & Social Care Awards 2020

Care Heroes is a recruitment initiative promoted by Herefordshire Council to highlight the positive aspects of working in the care industry and encourage more people to take up a career in adult social care.

The initiative aims to change attitudes about working in care and to help people discover a career where they can make a huge difference to the lives of local people, whilst gaining the skills and confidence to ensure our local population is safe and happy, now and in the future.

The initiative has a dedicated Care Heroes team that manage its website, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts. People can find out lots of information about working in adult social care and the wide variety of roles on offer. There’s also details on current job vacancies, training opportunities, career progression, recruitment events and a useful information section where you can find out about health and social care campaigns.

The team also worked with 20 local social care employees to produce honest and informative videos for the website that explain about what it’s like to be a care worker. Working in care is so much more than personal care and the videos give these workers the chance to tell you themselves about what an incredible and rewarding career it can be.

Herefordshire’s care workforce is an army of heroes that enhance the lives of thousands of local people every day, supporting them to keep their independence and to live happy and fulfilled lives.
