Care for Others. Make a Difference
The Government is encouraging the public to apply for rewarding short-term and long-term opportunities in the adult social care sector to support care home residents and those being cared for in their own homes.
The impact of the new C-19 variant is being felt across the country and additional staff are urgently needed now to support the adult social care workforce here in North Tyneside.

The ‘Care for Others. Make a Difference’ campaign also launches this week using television, digital and radio advertising to drive awareness of long-term career opportunities, highlighting the rewarding, varied and flexible roles available across the care sector to help build a sustainable workforce now and for the future.
Almost 1.5 million people work in adult social care and there are many opportunities for those looking to make a difference.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
I want to thank carers for all they do to look after our loved ones. Throughout this pandemic, they have gone above and beyond to protect our parents and grandparents, and to provide them with the support and care they need and we would be truly lost without them.
This exceptional career choice is tough but rewarding, and I would urge anyone who is thinking of a career in care to come forward and join this heroic workforce.
Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said:
We are doing everything we can to support the adult social care sector throughout this pandemic and our social care workforce have done an incredible job of helping the most vulnerable in society.
I am urging the public – whether you are a job-seeker, or looking for a new career – to consider working in care. We need short-term support while we face the pandemic and to continue to recruit the right people, with the right values, now and into the future.
Great progress has been made on offering vaccines to all older care home residents and care home staff and this recruitment drive will help us continue to fight this terrible virus.
Minister for Care Helen Whately said:
Since the pandemic began, we’ve seen thousands of wonderful people step forward to volunteer for the NHS and take part in our truly tremendous national vaccination effort. Today, I’m asking people to step forward to help in social care too.
We need more people who want to play their part in this pandemic to choose social care. There are thousands of opportunities, from short-term roles to long-term careers.
Jobs in the care sector are hard work, but they can also be incredibly rewarding. When you get home from work you know you’ve made a real difference for the people you care for. I know we can’t say thank you to care workers too many times for what they do.
Candidates do not necessarily need previous experience as training is provided to help them become valued members of the social care workforce.

Training, including infection prevention controls and use of personal protective equipment (PPE), is provided as well as vaccinations in line with key worker status and the priority vaccine scheme. We train all of our team at our own training centre in Whitley Bay.
