IN the few days since putting out the call for help, people all over the county have responded, with offers to help out and apply and volunteer.

Worcestershire County Council is still looking for people with good communication skills who are able to provide care and support to the most vulnerable people in our communities during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

There are a number of roles in social care that need filling, details can be found on

As staff respond to Coronavirus, the council needs to ensure that the care requirements of residents are met. To do this, there’s a need to help back-fill and support caring roles in day centres, care homes, residential care settings and in people's homes.

Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Adult Social Care, said: “I want to thank those people who have been in touch already. The situation remains unprecedented and our brilliant social care staff are doing a fantastic job.

“As we move forward, we know that our current staff will need help to manage the demand across Worcestershire, and this is where we need your support.

“One thing that has come out of this outbreak, is the desire shown by people to support others and we have a range of roles available for you to help care for those most in need across the county.”

On offer is a paid role that comes with training and the benefits of being a Worcestershire County Council employee.

You do not need any prior care experience, just a willingness to help.
