On the 4th of September NACAS UK will be hosting Professional Care Workers’ Day – celebrating those who aim to deliver fantastic care each and every day. The event will bring the industry together to applaud the carers who are there day in and day out, in the snow, scorching sun and pouring rain; at night, at Christmas, and on Sundays.
NACAS aspire to make care workers feel special for the awe-inspiring work that they do.
This national event will be held in London, along with a few regional events across the country. This years theme is focused on well-being. There will be free consultations with physiotherapists, psychologists, nutritionists, beauty and massage therapists, money and career advice, along with more ways to help care workers look after themselves and feel better.
Let’s all come together to celebrate care workers!
