County’s care workers to be celebrated in special event

Thirty care workers will be recognised at a special event organised by Lincolnshire Care Association (LinCA) on 20 July.

Care workers who have completed training in management, mentoring and assessing colleagues for their care certificate will be treated to afternoon tea for their hard work and achievements.

The event is part of a programme run by LinCA and supported by Lincolnshire County Council, to upskill the care workforce, promote careers in care and improve the quality of life of the people who use care services.

Melanie Weatherley, chairperson for LinCA, says:

“This event is to say a big ‘thank you’ to some of the people who are doing such an important job and making a positive difference to the lives of the people they care for every day. Working in care is very rewarding though often brings its challenges too”.

Care workers from a variety of organisations across the county will be presented with their certificates by Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell, executive member for Adult Care. Cllr Bradwell said:

“There are over 19,700 people working in the care sector in Lincolnshire and the work they do is so important to the people they care for, their families and the wider health and care sector. It is great to be able to have an opportunity to personally thank some of the special individuals who are developing their skills to provide great care and leadership.”
