As the much-anticipated Professional Care Workers’ Week in 2023 gets underway, Chief Executive, Karolina Gerlich, is thrilled to share why The Care Workers Charity promotes this vital week of awareness and appreciation.
Karolina Gerlich is the executive director of the Care Workers' Charity. She has been a care worker for twelve years alongside being a voice for care workers to raise awareness of their under-valued hard work.
Professional Care Workers’ Week (1-4 September) happens every year. Although in its relative infancy, the events of the last few months have made these dedicated days of awareness raising more vital than ever. Karolina Gerlich, Executive Director of the Care Workers' Charity explains why she wants to see the care and support sector adopt, support, and promote the week’s themes, values and aspirations.
