Linkage Community Trust, the Lincolnshire charity supporting people with learning disabilities, is joining in with a national recruitment campaign to help raise the profile of the adult social care profession.

The government have just launched the #everydayisdifferent campaign to encourage more people to work in the adult social care sector.

Linkage, one of the county’s largest care providers with around 700 staff, said they’re proud to support the campaign that has the aim of driving a new generation of people to consider and apply for a job in adult social care.

Helen Wooding, Support worker at Linkage, said: “Every day is a proud moment because I make a difference. Supporting the vulnerable, treating them with respect and knowing that I’ve done everything I can to make sure they have a positive day.”

Marina McEwan, Head of HR at Linkage, said: “People don’t realise the range of roles available in the care sector, from support workers to Registered Care Home Managers to Finance professionals.

“Despite our staff turnover being significantly lower than the national average we do still find recruiting new staff to be a challenge so to be competitive we offer a range of benefits such as generous annual leave entitlement, full training to nationally recognised standards and more.”

Rex Richardson, Director of Care Services at Linkage, said: “Linkage care staff have been doing amazing things for people with learning disabilities across Lincolnshire for 43 years and I am delighted to see this national campaign launched to raise the profile of our wonderful care workers.”
