Social Care meets Good Care Month

Throughout July we celebrate Good Care Month, an initiative dedicated to enhancing  recognition of Social Care, thereby promoting career opportunities within the sector.

Social care workers provide practical and emotional support to individuals, families, and communities to improve their well-being and quality of life. They can assist with household tasks, personal care, organising activities, and provide respite care. Social Care can change lives and enable individuals to live with dignity and independence.

At New Directions, our dedicated social care team goes above and beyond to provide quality staff who make a difference to the lives of vulnerable individuals of all ages. From supporting children and young people in care to assisting the homeless, those impacted by substance misuse, adults with mental health conditions or learning disabilities, children, toddlers, and the elderly and infirm, we are committed to delivering exceptional care and support.

Here we prioritise quality and compliance. Every candidate registered with us undergoes thorough checks and referencing conducted by our award-winning team. We leave no stone unturned in vetting and assessing our candidates before making them available to work within our communities. This meticulous approach ensures that our staff meet the highest standards, providing peace of mind for both our clients and the individuals they care for.

A true example of this is Adult Support Worker, Blessing Akinbola who has told us why registering with New Directions has helped him continue to do what he loves.

“One of the things I love most about working within the Health and Social Care sector is the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives. It is incredibly rewarding to know that the work I do directly contributes to improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities. Whether it’s providing care and support to vulnerable populations, advocating for better healthcare services, or conducting research to advance medical knowledge, each aspect of the sector plays a crucial role in enhancing people’s quality of life.

“Another aspect I appreciate is the diversity of roles and settings within Health and Social Care . From direct patient care in hospitals or clinics to community outreach programs, mental health services, and social work, there are numerous avenues to explore and contribute in meaningful ways. This variety allows for personal and professional growth, as it continuously presents new challenges and opportunities to expand one’s skill set.”

“Additionally, the sector is inherently human-centred. It revolves around understanding and addressing the unique needs and concerns of individuals, families, and communities. This emphasis on empathy, compassion, and person-centred care aligns with my own values and strengthens my commitment to making a difference in people’s lives. It brings me immense satisfaction to be able to provide support, comfort, and hope to those who are going through difficult times or facing health challenges.

“Lastly, the Health and Social Care sector is dynamic and ever-evolving. It requires continuous learning, keeping up with advancements in medical research, new treatments, and changing healthcare policies. This aspect appeals to my curiosity and desire for personal growth. Being part of an industry that encourages lifelong learning and professional development keeps me engaged, motivated, and excited about the work I do.

“I find great fulfilment in this meaningful and rewarding profession”, concluded Blessing.
