Celebrities Promote Career In Care
Four celebrities have come together to promote working in care, as part of the government’s Made With Care recruiting campaign.
Paralympian Ade Adepitan MBE, reality TV star Christine McGuinness, rapper Lady Leshurr and author and influencer Toni Tone are all participating in the campaign, sharing their experiences on social media.
For Ade Adepitan, the care sector has played a huge role in his life. His sister, Omoyile, has Down Syndrome and the support from care workers has given her the tools and ability to gain independence that would have been incredibly challenging otherwise. In addition, a short breaks centre; in Brent for children and young people aged from eight to eighteen, with profound and multiple learning difficulties, complex health needs, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, has been named after him.
Best-selling author Toni Tone is using her gift for writing to express the impact care workers have on their care recipient’s quality of life, and the emotional rewards that care workers themselves can gain in return.
Reality TV star, documentary maker and campaigner who recently fronted a BBC show on her family’s experience of autism – Christine McGuiness is lending her voice to the campaign after meeting adults with autism and their carers whilst researching autism for her documentary.
Rapper and star of Dancing on Ice 2021 Lady Leshurr has a close connection to the care sector as her mother is a care worker. She is incredibly proud of the impact and amazing difference she has seen her make on people’s lives.
Keep up with the campaign on the Made with Care Facebook page.
