Out of office: into service

by Andrew Cannon

Each year, I spend a week working at the frontline as a care and support worker. This year, I'm off to Wrexham Supported Living. I'll share some insights via video each day after my shift...

Preparing for day 1: reflecting on purpose & feeling nervous

Second day of my week in service: moments of wonder working with the people we support

Second day of my week in service: reflections on why I go into service every year for a week

Day three: Organisation vs individual (and love)

Day four: Farewells, reflections on individual connections and thoughts on an organisation’s final mile.

Day five: New day at a new supported living home - reflections on the lows

Day five: meeting the team and experiencing the unexpected highs and joys

Day six: Thank you's and why we work in social care
