Message from DHSC Adult Social Care Recruitment Campaign
The Department of Health & Social Care is in the process of producing short 2-3 minute video case studies documenting care workers and those who receive care. Click here for an example of one it has produced.
It is looking to produce more of these videos so it can showcase the variety across the adult social care. In particular, it would like to film people who work in adult social care across all ages, all ethnicities and both male and female, who:
- Can talk about how they have made a big impact on a care recipient’s life/lives – and in the same video, film the care recipient(s) talking about that member of staff. This would ideally be in a residential care home.
- Can talk about their personal life and how the flexibility of the job fits around this. It would like to film them in their home environment as well as work – this being in a residential care home.
- Can talk about the variety of work that they do in their role in a residential care home.
- Can give an overview of the training opportunities they’ve been offered/done, how they’ve used their transferable skills in their role, and how they’ve learnt new skills – either in a residential or domiciliary care setting.
Do you want to be involved? Are you able to talk to the Department about participating in a video talking about one of the topics above? Ideally within the South East region as the video team is based in London and can travel.
If you are interested please do contact : email@example.com
In case people don’t want to participate in a video but would still like to send in a shorter case study (e.g. a blog), that’s also be fine – please could you / volunteers contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be contacted.
