WeCare Wales is the national attraction and recruitment campaign for social care, childcare and early years. The campaign aims to:
- Raise the profile and understanding of roles in social care, early years and child care.
- Improving perceptions of care as a carer and a profession with opportunities to progress
- Enhancing public understanding of the care sectors and drawing into the workforce those with the right values
The WeCare Wales website contains a number of very useful resources, case studies and a jobs portal to support attraction and recruitment to the sector.
The Regional Partnership Team has been a key stakeholder in the development of the WeCare Wales campaign. We have co-ordinated and produced various social media assets and content featuring the local Gwent workforce to support WeCare Wales campaign activity at a local level. We also continue to promote the campaign and its resources in local schools.

WeCare Wales Recruitment Bus: Dates and Times
A new recruitment bus that looks to help people take their first steps into the social care sector, is touring Gwent this year.
Visitors to the bus will be able to speak with a number of social care employers, including the 5 councils of Gwent, to start their careers in care.
A wide range of rewarding roles will be on offer on the day and people will get the chance to meet and talk to people who already work in Gwent’s social care sector.
The recruitment bus will be on the road until September 2023, visiting venues across Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen
It is hoped that it helps raise the profile and demonstrate the full breadth of social care career pathways available locally.
