Proud to Care – a career in health and social care

Are You Proud to Care?

It is well known that Scotland urgently needs more people to work in Health & Social Care (H&SC).  As a result, we are pleased to be supporting the Proud to Care campaign across the 6 Local Authorities involved in the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Deal (Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian, Fife and the Scottish Borders).  

The video below, along with a supporting suite of social media content highlight a variety of inspirational individuals across the sector.  You will see that all who feature want to share their experiences and how they, themselves, make a difference. They illustrate that although at times, it can be hard work and demanding they would like to entice viewers to consider this as a career offering rewarding, challenging, diverse and accommodating opportunities and it may be ‘one of the best things you will ever do!’  


We are asking for your help.
