An initiative to address the need for social care workers has reached over 100 recruits.

With a current national shortage of staff working in social care, combined with people living longer, there has never been a greater need for people to work in the sector.

Since it was launched in September 2019, County Durham Care Academy, run by Durham County Council, has played a major part in inspiring a new generation of care workers and helping people looking for a career change.

Recruitment programmes are delivered throughout the year by the council’s in-house training provider DurhamLearn.

It accepts referrals from local Jobcentres as well as self-referrals.
