22 September 2021
We are delighted to introduce you to the inaugural Celebrating Homecare
event which will take place on 22 September 2021.
In the wake of the outpouring of public support and recognition of our sector (the like of which we have never seen before) there has never been a better time to shout about homecare from the rooftops!
Celebrating Homecare is an initiative developed by the Homecare Association in conjunction with the Care Workers' Charity. It’s all about celebrating the amazing difference homecare makes in people’s lives every day.
Celebrating Homecare is also being supported by care associations across the UK and Ireland including Scottish Care, Care Forum Wales, Independent Health & Care Providers (Northern Ireland) and Home and Community Care Ireland.
Thank you to Bluebird Care, Grosvenor Health and Social Care and Home Instead who have contributed to the development of this initiative.
Celebrating Homecare will have a different theme each year.
This year, with the popularity of programmes such as The Sewing Bee, Repair Shop and Bake Off, we want to celebrate the many things careworkers and their clients make or create at home and the relationships they develop doing so.
Whether it’s a favourite bake, a piece of poetry or art, a jigsaw puzzle, piece of knitting or sewing...or have they embraced Tik Tok?
Whatever it is that careworkers and clients are creating together; we want to see it and celebrate it!
