We at Healthwatch want to recognise the valuable often unseen work of care workers who are supporting the vulnerable, whether in homes or the wider community, who are often struggling with specific needs during self isolation. Our social care workers, both paid and unpaid, are working round the clock doing their everyday tasks and importantly helping the community smile in these challenging times. Your uplifting stories will help us all appreciate their value even more. It is vital at the moment to help vulnerable people in our region who might have disabilities or learning difficulties or mental health conditions and need extra care to cope.

Healthwatch is here to ensure the most vulnerable people stay safe and their voices are heard. Telling us your views about care during this pandemic could save lives. Now more than ever we will listen to your experiences of care and pass these on to providers. Everyone is working extra hard at the moment so we are here to let people know if there are cases where people are struggling and cannot find what they need to help them through this difficult time.
