What is Social Care?
Social Care concerns itself with helping people live their lives comfortably, particularly those people who require a certain degree of extra practical and physical help.
Social care workers endeavour to provide this service of practical support with a view of helping individuals maintain their independence, to increase their quality of life and to help them lead fuller more enjoyable lives.
What do Social Carers Do?
Social care workers often just help out with those everyday tasks that seem small to the average person, but can make a massive difference to someone else's life as well as being a rewarding experience for the carer involved.
We arrange care and support services for adults aged 18 years and older to enable them to:
- be as independent as possible
- have choice and control over their life
- lead a healthier, safer, active and fulfilling life
- have the same opportunities as everyone else
- play a full role in their community
We work with adults who have physical disability, learning disability, sensory impairment, mental health needs and substance misuse issues, as well as people who care for others.
