To try and combat the huge shortage of paid care workers Herts County Council has teamed up with private providers to launch Good Care Hertfordshire.
Part of the project showcases the work one Stevenage woman does to encourage people to pick a career in the sector.
Audrey Chikomba, left, lives in the town and works as a support at home team leader.
The 33-year-old said: “It’s a wonderful career and it just doesn’t stop. You can go from care worker to team leader to coordinator to manager.”
The council needs to recruit 2,000 carers a year and is offering above minimum-wage salaries. For more visit www.hertsgoodcare.com.
