From kitchen to caring

Working with adults and young people in social care can be challenging. But, for the right person it can be really rewarding.

Working in social care can be the lifeline your community needs.

Meet Steve, who has changed his career from working as a chef to becoming a support worker in Wrexham.

Did you know that in Wales around 20,000 more people are going to be needed by 2030 to work in care? It’s employment that’s flexible, can fit in with family and circumstances and is very rewarding.


Here in Wrexham we support children, young people and vulnerable adults as well as their families and carers. The support comes from a range of roles to help individuals live as safely and independently as possible.

We provide care directly to individuals in a range of settings, from supporting people in their own homes with day to day living tasks, to accompanying individuals to day centres or activity groups, taking them swimming or visiting the cinema, to caring for people with complex health needs in residential homes or supported accommodation.

Each role in Social Care offers a variety of challenges and rewards and offers training and development opportunities for you if you wish to support people to get the most from their lives and enable them to be part of their communities.

We work with a number of contracted partners who support the authority by providing social care services to individuals living in Wrexham.

We work with partners to provide our social care and you can find out if there’s one near you and what jobs are available on the following link.

We Care Wales has a fantastic website that has videos, information and advice direct from those working in the care industry right now. It’s worth a look and we’re sure you’ll find something to suit your personal circumstances.

Everyone has the capacity to care. If you are considering a job in the care sector, you can find more information here.
