A CHARITY from Worthing which employs more than 650 staff is backing a new national campaign.

There are currently more than 100,000 vacancies across the UK in the healthcare sector, a figure which may rise after Brexit.

Every Day Is Different has been launched to encourage people to take up jobs as care workers, therapists and activity co-ordinators.

Guild Care is based in Worthing and the majority of staff work in caring roles.

Eileen Garbutt is the health and wellbeing co-ordinator at the charity’s Haviland House dementia care home.

She said anyone considering going into care should do it “in a heart-beat, adding: “I’d say DO IT!

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve no great experience in adult social care because if you can show sympathy and have empathy then you qualify and if you are caring and careful, again you qualify.

“I personally have never felt such a personal sense of belonging and a sense of trust and love as I have since I started to work in adult social care.

“I truly know that I couldn’t go back to the blue chippers and white collars of the commercial world.

“Adult social care ticks all the boxes I didn’t even realise I needed ticking and as much as I’m deliriously happy to be where I am within Guild Care.”

Neil worked in IT for 28 years before moving into the care sector.

He is a Butterfly Support Worker also at Haviland House.

He said: “The best part of the job is definitely the interaction with our residents, which we call family members and knowing my contribution has made a real difference.”
