Dare to Care
Healthwatch Blackpool have developed Dare to Care in partnership with other organisations in the Fylde Coast.
Dare to Care is an exciting pathway that has been developed for people who have experience as a Carer and would like to receive training and support to get insight to what it’s like to work in a Care Home.
The pathway will last for around 12 weeks and offers flexible volunteering hours, education and learning options to enhance knowledge, potentially to continue as a volunteer or for a future career in care.
Our experience of the pandemic has highlighted workforce challenges for Care Homes, and we aim to improve recruitment and retention by giving Carers this opportunity.
If you have experience of caring we would like to hear from you!
