SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
A Newtown care company has joined a growing list of care providers coming together to help fill hundreds of social care vacancies in north Powys and throughout Wales.
 
Abacare is just one of hundreds of businesses that are behind the WeCare Wales campaign.
 
Neil Griffiths, Regional Manager at Abacare, said: “The social care sector is under increasing pressure from an ageing population, and the current pandemic, to provide care to vulnerable individuals across the country.
 
“This is why we’re thrilled to be part of the WeCare Wales campaign, run by Social Care Wales, which works with employers to share all available job vacancies. We know how hard it can sometimes be to find vacancies, so to have them all on one website is extremely handy for jobseekers.
 
“There are currently thousands of people in the hospitality, leisure and retail industries who are facing unemployment and we, along with WeCare Wales, are urging them to consider transferring their skills to a long-term role in the care industry.”
 
Abacare is listed as one of the social care employers that people interested in the industry can find out more about on www.wecare.wales so they can potentially join its team.
 
The campaign is a collaboration with Social Care Wales and leading organisations representing social care, early years and childcare in Wales, as well as other national bodies involved in job-seeking and careers advice.
 
It is part of a long-term strategy to develop the workforces in the care and health sectors over the next decade, to provide a high-quality, seamless service to the people of Wales.
 
The campaign highlights the breadth of career opportunities in care, from childminders and nursery practitioners to home care co-ordinators and care home managers.
 
The WeCare campaign aims to show the variety of roles and career progression opportunities available. By using real care workers, the campaign focuses on the challenges they face, as well as what makes their work rewarding and worthwhile.
