Care England Celebrates Care Home Open Week 2023

Care England is celebrating Care Home Open Week 2023!

Over 4,000 homes across the country have registered to participate in Care Home Open Week 2023 and over 115 MPs are already planning visits to local care homes.

To celebrate the length and breadth of care homes across the country participating in Care Home Open Week, the inaugural ‘Great British Care Cycle Relay’ will travel from the North to the South, visiting care homes along the way that are at the heart of each community across the country.

Care Home Open Week will kick off the week with a launch event on Monday, 26 June to celebrate the many care homes supporting communities across the country, with partners and MPs expected to join. The highlight will include a performance by the winners of this year’s ‘Care Sector’s Got Talent’.

Championing Social Care is working with headline partners Virgin Money, Civitas Investment Management, and Christie & Co, as well as several other partners including NAPA, NCF, Music For Dementia, Eden Project, HC-One, The Caring Times – Care Managers Show, Scottish Care and APPG.

Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says: “Care Home Open Week represents an opportunity for care services to champion their work by opening their doors to local communities across England and demonstrate the fantastic work they do. This week is an opportunity to enable local communities to understand the important role social care plays in supporting residents and families. The sector is brimming with innovation, energy and commitment. Now is our chance to celebrate everything that makes our sector so special and show the public what we have to offer.”

Mitesh Dhanak, chair of the organising committee of Championing Social Care and founder of Precious Homes, said: “We’re delighted with the enthusiasm we’ve seen from care homes so far to participate in this year’s Care Home Open Week. We hope that care homes will find this new set of tools helpful, and that they will inspire them with new ways to promote the exciting events that are taking place within their own care homes.

“This year’s Care Home Open Week aims to connect communities and it’s our ambition that different sections of society will come together during this week. We’re grateful to our headline sponsors for their continued support and guidance in helping us make this happen.”
