Collaboration is at the heart of PCWW, offering a platform to share best practices, experiences, and discuss critical topics such as care worker well-being, workforce skills, the cost of living crisis, and strategies to support care workers.

Beyond discussions and panels, PCWW is a celebration. It’s a time to honour care workers who provide unwavering support to those in need, regardless of the challenges they face.

As a special gesture, we encourage Care Providers to use this week to express appreciation for their teams through small tokens of thanks, such as cards, cakes, parties, certificates, or any creative way to show gratitude.
