People who need care and support in Cornwall are calling on everyone who can, to urgently step up and apply for a role in Cornwall’s care sector.
The call for more carers comes as Cornwall faces an unprecedented demand for care and support during the coronavirus emergency.
Cornwall Council is mobilising as many workers as it can spare, as well as leading the recruitment campaign, working closely with its arms-length company, Corserv, Volunteer Cornwall, Cornwall Adult Health and Social Care Learning Partnership (CAHSC) and other partners to ensure that the people who need help don’t miss out on vital care.
CAHSC have led work with providers to develop a comprehensive induction programme to ensure that all those who are recruited have the essential skills and knowledge required for the role and there are plenty of opportunities for this to become a permanent role in the future.
If people in our area want to help, they should visit the Proud to Care Cornwall website and apply as soon as possible. Anyone wanting to help only in a volunteer capacity should visit the Volunteer Cornwall website.
