Answered by: Jeane Freeman 11 March 2019
Part 2 of the original iteration of the National Health & Social Care Workforce Plan included a recommendation that a national recruitment campaign for the social care sector should be undertaken, promoting the sector as a positive career destination. Preparatory work for the campaign is underway at the moment, with a view to launching in the autumn of this year.
