Proud to Care Cornwall

Proud to Care Cornwall started work in 2017 with a relaunch in 2019. The work is led and facilitated by Cornwall Council, but it is very much a partnership initiative with active engagement from Cornwall’s social care providers, health sector colleagues and sector representative organisations.

Cornwall has over 300 different care establishments plus other care providers including a network of Personal Assistants supporting individuals. The work of Proud to Care Cornwall is guided by the workforce needs of this large and diverse sector. We have a dual focus – the first is public facing to raise the profile of jobs and careers in adult social care and encourage people to find employment in the sector, and secondly to provide information and support to adult social care employers. Areas of work include Recruitment and Retention, Learning and Development and the Wellbeing of the workforce.
