Ageing population leading to increasing vacancies in care sector

From 13-19 of May, Care Sector Alliance Cumbria is hoping to encourage new people to consider a career in home care.

The county's ageing population and a demand for greater independence means more older people want to have their care needs met in their own home.

An information tent will be set up in the city centre where people can find out more about the service, meet practicing care workers and access a list of current vacancies within the caring profession. Applications for jobs can also be made on the day.
