Did you know that one in five of Derbyshire’s population are aged 65 or over and that this figure is set to increase in coming years? Adult social care does not only support elderly people, but also those with physical disabilities, autism and mental health issues.

A career in care provides the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of adults living in Derby and Derbyshire. Hundreds of local care workers are helping people stay safe in their own homes, residential homes and in the community.

There are a range of rewarding and challenging roles within the care sector for people wanting to have a direct, visible impact on people’s lives. 

A career in care is not only rewarding, but offers flexibility, variety, and opportunities for progression and promotion. Training is provided in many caring roles to help you gain new skills and progress your career.
