If you are a kind and caring person, it is likely working in adult social care will be a good fit for you.

If you are a bit nervous about changing career there are ways you can test the water.

Many care providers will offer shadow shifts where you will follow a trained member of staff while they work to give you an idea of what the role is like. You could also consider volunteering. Many services need volunteers to help with activities or offer companionship to service users. If this is something you would be interested in contact the Proud to Care team and we can put you in touch with local care providers.
