Summary of support available to Care Leavers


Central Bedfordshire Council – Adult Social Care Roles

Adult social care is about helping adults who are having problems with their physical health and helping vulnerable adults within our community. Carers provide a level of care and support that allows those who require varying levels of assistance to live their lives in a supported and enhanced way.

Within our own Central Bedfordshire community there are over 7000 people employed in health and care roles and with a growing and ageing population, this is set to increase. Deciding on a career in adult social care will offer many rewarding opportunities and can lead to a long and fulfilling career, unfortunately, some myths do exist around what a career in this area will be like and these myths can sometimes distract from all of the positive experiences you could have within this career.
