Stephanie Johnson, care worker from Time 2 Care, one of the care providers we work with, has been flying the flag for Proud to Care Ambassadors at an event in London.
Stephanie is one of 132 Proud to Care Ambassadors, who promote careers in health and social care in Devon by visiting schools, colleges, universities, and job centre and apprenticeship events. This network of health and social care staff was set up by Proud to Care Devon.
Stephanie, along with fellow Proud to Care Ambassadors, went to London to share Devon’s successful involvement in the national pilot for integrated health and social care ambassadors.
Representatives from several London boroughs attended and are interested in following in Devon’s footsteps.
There are some real positives from the pilot:
- Health and social care providers in Devon have increased the share of the audience interested in a career in the sector by 23%
- 82% of ambassadors have increased their confidence
- 68% of ambassadors feel more motivated in their work as a result of being a Proud to Care Ambassador
