Social care bodies across England have joined together to launch Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection honouring the work and lives of the adult social care workforce during the pandemic.
A total of 21 organisations supported by Social Care minister Helen Whately have come together to launch the memorial day being held in March 2022.
An estimated 922 social care workers in England lost their lives between March 2020 & May 2021.
A Memorial Wall and Thank You Wall have been launched on The Care Workers’ Charity website where people can share tributes to care workers lost during the pandemic and say thank you to those who provided vital support.
Marking many months of sacrifice
The past year has been a difficult time for the entire adult social care workforce, across the adult social care sector.
