MP Matt Hancock has thanked social care workers for their dedication and support during this incredibly challenging time on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care.
In his letter he recognised that social care staff are in the front line, caring for others, while also balancing keeping themselves and their loved ones healthy and supporting their colleagues.
Leader of Walsall Council, Councillor Mike Bird, said, ‘Alongside the amazing work of the NHS, the dedication of social workers and carers in the independent sector is beyond belief, in what are very challenging circumstances. I am immensely proud of the work they do supporting our most vulnerable residents and welcome this recognition of their role from national government.’
