Good Care Month July 2018
What is the Good Care Month campaign?
In Hertfordshire, we are proud of our social care workforce and the quality care that is carried out every day. Good Care Month is a chance to celebrate the excellent care that you and your teams provide across the county 24/7, 365 days a year.
We are campaigning to raise the profile of the social care sector and to promote the great career opportunities and progression available to those who choose a career in social care.
Good Care Month aims to help tackle this by:
- Showing the public what working in care is really like
- Promoting the variety of roles available
- Reaching out to people who might never have considered working in care before or haven’t taken the next step into a role in
