This April we’re #CelebratingSocialCare and the incredible people who work in care, and we’d love you to join us in our celebrations.

At Ƶ, we celebrate social care year-round but throughout April we’re celebrating a little bit louder and encouraging everyone else to join in.

Since 2022, we’ve dedicated the month of April to #CelebratingSocialCare.

People who work in social care are highly-skilled, passionate and hard-working and it’s important that we all take time to recognise this vital work and the impact it has in supporting people who draw on care to live their lives how they choose.   

Get involved
