Government Launches New App for Care Workers

In the fight against Covid-19, the UK Government has launched a new app designed to assist care workers in their daily activities.

Keeping up to date with latest guidance around Covid-19 has proven challenging, but all that should become more straightforward now that this app was developed as a unified information hub to ensure carers are able to access all the guidance they need to perform their day-to-day duties.

Named the Care Workforce app, it also offers wellbeing guidance and discounts for carers using existing reward schemes that workers in other sectors such as the NHS have access to. Discounts can help with parking, which is a big deal when you move around between clients’ homes.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said of the app:

“Our incredible social care workforce are on the frontline day and night providing quality care to the most vulnerable in our society during the most unprecedented time in our history. The whole country is incredibly grateful of the work they continue to do for our loved ones.

“As part of our continued work to back the care sector, we have launched a new app specifically for care workers to make sure they have the most up-to-date guidance to keep them safe, connected with their colleagues across the country, which also allows them to access discounts like their NHS counterparts.

“It’s available to download right now, and I would urge everyone in social care to do so.”
