Understanding your Role in Care

Social care is the provision of social work, personal care, protection or social support services to children or adults in need, or at risk, or adults with needs arising from illness, disability, old age or poverty. 

Choosing a job in health and social care means you want to make a difference to other people's lives by supporting and caring for them, so they can thrive and their quality of life is enhanced. 

To work in a professional manner and provide the best quality of care, you need to know the duties, responsibilities and boundaries of your job.
