Toby Perkins MP for Chesterfield, announces support for Government campaign to recruit more adult social care workers locally

Toby Perkins MP for Chesterfield has joined MPs across the UK in supporting a national recruitment campaign, from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), to address the 110,000 vacancies in adult social care across England.

Running across February and March, the campaign aims to fill the sector’s recruitment gap and support local recruitment activity by increasing interest in adult social care as a career choice and driving awareness of the variety of roles available. The national campaign will comprise social media, digital and local radio advertising, events and media relations across England.

“I fully support this campaign and am looking forward to seeing its impact on the number of vacancies in Chesterfield.”

“By helping local employers recruit people with the right personal values for care work, our communities will be better supported by highly motivated and skilled workers. If you think a career in adult social care could be for you, or someone you know, visit the campaign website www.everydayisdifferent.com for more information on what it means to work in adult social care.”
