Event

Recruiting and retaining care workers in rural Wales

23 July 2019 , 14:00-15:00
Tŵr Brycheiniog, Royal Welsh Showground
Powys County Council and Social Care Wales

Wales will need thousands more people to work in caring roles with adults and children by 2030 if it is to keep pace with the growing demand for care services and provide support for communities across the country. 

In March 2019, the ‘WeCare’ campaign was launched to raise awareness of the growing demand for care workers.

If you're attending the Royal Welsh, come join Social Care Wales and Powys County Council to learn more about the campaign and the work of Powys County Council in engaging with care workers. 

The event will also provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities around recruiting and retaining care workers in rural Wales. 

Confirmed speakers include Social Care Wales Chief Executive, Sue Evans, and Chair, Arwel Ellis Owen OBE, and Head of Social Services Commissioning Powys County Council, Dylan Owen.
