Professor Martin Green OBE Chief Executive: Care England
When an individual requires support and care they need not only clinical and health supports to keep them well and healthy, but they also need support which enables them not to just survive but to live life to the fullest. The hundreds of activity professionals working across the country are an amazing group of women and men. It is they who through their creativity and ingenuity, through their skill and abilities, make such a difference to so many people in care homes and people who use supports in day and community settings. It is this workforce who work alongside older individuals and those with disabilities helping them to get in touch with their own creativity, to learn new skills and discover new abilities. They are individuals who deserve every bit of recognition we can give them.
