This annual event raises awareness of more than 80,000 people working in social care and childcare in Wales.
They provide vital services that support tens of thousands of people in Wales every day.
How we’re taking part
Our Chief Inspector, Imelda Richardson will visit the Crossroad Care’s Information and Outreach Service in Llanelli on Tuesday to meet Chief Executive Martin Morris, families and carers using the service.
She’ll learn more about the service and meet staff and volunteers there.
Chief Inspector Imelda Richardson said:
Social care workers provide critical support to people who use services, their families and relatives.
Their hard work often goes unrecognised – which is where Social Care Week comes in, to celebrate and recognise their significant contribution to improving people’s lives in Wales.
It really is important to pause and reflect on the hard work going on in Wales day in, day out.
