CALLING ALL CARE WORKERS WORKING IN COMMUNITY-BASED PERSONAL CARE

We are conducting some research into recruitment and retention issues among the Adult Social Care workforce. We need to speak to current and former community-based personal Care Workers, working in Devon County Council’s geographical area, to get their views. 

We are particularly keen to speak to community-based personal Care Workers who may:

  • Have worked for more than one employer;
  • Have worked in sectors other than Adult Social Care; or
  • Be thinking of leaving Adult Social Care.

We will be running 90 minutes focus groups in early to mid-July across Devon, with refreshments being provided. Those who book in advance will receive a cash payment of £20 on the day to cover their time and expenses. If you would like to take part, please:

  • Have left Adult Social Care to work in another sector; or
  • Be thinking of returning to Adult Social Care.

Many thanks in anticipation of your help
