Ellie's Experience at The Prince's Trust

Majesticare Family Member Ellie recently had the privilege of addressing a group of young adults at a Prince’s Trust session, shedding light on the rewarding world of adult social care. She offered insights into various roles within the field, emphasising the importance of values over qualifications. Ellie passionately shared her experiences as an activity coordinator, showcasing the joyous moments and avenues for feeling valued in her role.

The Prince’s Trust is an organisation that help young people succeed and flourish in new roles. Their sessions are all about building confidence and life skills!

“Ellie’s session was very informative and allowed young people to gain a better understanding of what working in the care sector is all about”

During the session, Ellie highlighted the significance of every role within a care home, explaining the collaborative nature of the care environment.

“Every role is important in a care home, it wouldn’t function without each cog in the machine.”

– Ellie Lucas

Her talk resonated with a former care home housekeeper and even sparked curiosity in another attendee, who previously considered only caregiving roles. This attendee said she was now open to exploring what other roles could be suited to her in social care. Ellie organised to have those who were interest in a care career visit her home, Cavendish Park Care Home, in Evesham for taster activity sessions with the lovely residents.
