Adult social care takes on many different forms and helps adults of all ages. It is held together by a common purpose: not just helping people with a wide range of needs, but helping people to live the best possible life.
A career in social care is emotionally rewarding – knowing every day that you are making a difference to people’s lives. That is why supporting the care sector is so critical at this time. Whatever your circumstances, great social care can make all the difference to a person’s quality of life. By choosing a career in social care with Halton Borough Council you will be considered an asset to the sector whilst making a real difference to your local community.
