Professional Care Workers Day

4th Septembers 2018

On the 4th of September we will be celebrating the first Professional Care Workers Day.

This is a day to celebrate amazing care work that we witness and deliver everyday. We want to invite everybody to celebrate with us.

If you are a care worker be proud and feel the part of the community. If you are a provider maybe organise a picnic or a party for people that work for you to say thank you and to show your appreciation for their hard work. If you receive care services please say thank you.

Let's all join in and come together in uniting professional care workers and celebrating care delivery.

We will be hosting an official morning session with speakers in London and a picnic in the afternoon.

Help us spread the word and make the day really special.

For more information on how to get involved please karolina@nacas.org.uk.
