What is Adult Social Care?
Adult social care is about supporting people to maintain their independence, dignity and control to help people live their lives well! It’s also about someone like YOU making a difference every day to the ‘real lives’ in your care!

As an Adult social care worker, you could be supporting someone between 18 – 70 or over, with a range of disabilities, dementia or mental health conditions, working in a care home, in the local community or from someone’s home.

Why choose Adult Social Care?
Working in adult social care can be a flexible fit with education/training, lifestyle and family commitments. Adult social care is one of the few sectors where jobs are increasing and where there are significant numbers of long-term career opportunities in the current job market!

Career Progression
Many people who start as care workers can and do go on to take senior positions in adult social care, or train for specialist positions in the NHS. Whatever YOUR vision, adult social care provides a solid career pathway for your whole life.
