Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection

Learning Disability England is one of 21 partners across England who have joined together to launch Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection.

It is to honour the work of the adult social care workforce during the pandemic, and those we sadly lost.

The Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection will be held in March 2022.

Ahead of the day a Memorial Wall and Thank You Wall have been created, hosted on the CWC website.

You can leave a tribute to a lost loved one.

Or a thank you to a support worker or Personal Assistant worker who has provided vital support to you or someone you know.

Or why not post a well done to a colleague who worked hard to help keep the people they support safe during the pandemic.

Despite the huge pressures during the pandemic, so many support workers, Personal Assistants, support providers and wider social care staff continued to show incredible skill and tenacity.

Because of them, many people with learning disabilities were able to continue to live good and independent lives even during the toughest times.

And sadly an estimated 922 social care workers in England lost their lives between March 2020 and May 2021.

This day and the online walls are an opportunity to remember all those in the workforce have made huge sacrifices to continue to provide great support, including those who sadly lost their own lives.
