Our Hertfordshire Good Care campaign is an opportunity to celebrate the great care provided across the county to residents 24/7, 365 days a year. Working in partnership with Hertfordshire Care Providers Association (HCPA) we aim to shine a spotlight on our care workforce and encourage more people to think about a career in the sector.
In Hertfordshire we need to recruit over 2,000 additional care staff each year just to keep pace with increasing demand for care services. We’re tackling this issue head on, by championing social care and demonstrating our commitment to offer the best deal for care staff. This year our Hertfordshire Good Care campaign plans have expanded and we will be holding two Good Care months, in July 2018 and January 2019.
As in previous years we are hoping to co-ordinate visits for MPs, Councillors and partners to engage with care workers and service users at both external care homes and home care providers as well as in some of our own in-house services during our Herts Good Care Months. Hertfordshire’s care providers and care workers really appreciate these visits and so we’re hoping that as many people as possible will support this element of the campaign.
If you are interested in visiting one of our HCC services’ or a provider run service please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability in July and preferred location(s) in the county so that we can arrange an opportunity for you.
