Future Social Care Coalition

Susan Hall

“I have worked in Social Care for over six years.

I love the job however some days can be very challenging.

As Social Care workers, we have to keep up with our training courses along with all our other workloads. We are more than a Care/Support workers, we are a friend, family members, companions, Doctors, Nurses, Cook, Cleaner, Driver and much more! Many of us have to administer medication.

We are the first people to notice when our service users are unwell, frightened, and anxious. We are vastly underpaid especially if we work with Mental Health and challenging behaviour.”
