Care Sector’s Got Talent 2024 Proves the Care Sector Really Does Have Talent!

On Tuesday 16th April, at the Coventry Building Society Arena, eight finalists from across the UK showcased their talents in the annual Care Sector’s Got Talent, an event aimed at uniting the care sector through its abundance of talent. Organised by Championing Social Care, this year’s auditions welcomed residents, team members, contractors, and care home entertainers, along with anyone associated with the care sector.

Roy Chubby Brown, Britain’s Got Talent’s Alfie Joey, and Care Sector’s Got Talent committee member Robert Speker narrowed down the record-breaking number of entries to eight finalists who vied for the title of Care Sector’s Got Talent 2024 winner. From a captivating dementia choir to a lively trio of Bollywood dancers, the performances showcased remarkable diversity, with Chair of Care England, Angela Boxall, acting as host.

Judges Bhavna Keane-Rao, Cheryl Jones, Michael Butler, and Sanjay Dhrona faced a challenging task in selecting a winner. Ultimately, Molly Blackburn, a gifted vocalist and care worker, stole the spotlight with her stunning rendition of “Defying Gravity” from the hit musical, Wicked.

In addition to the main prize, the audience had the opportunity to vote for the act they believed deserved a scholarship fund prize. A tie in the voting meant The Sam Beckman Choir and New Centre Stage both emerged victorious, taking away a £500 cash prize.

Reflecting on the event’s success, Chair of Care Sector’s Got Talent, Aneurin Brown, said: “Care Sector’s Got Talent was a resounding success this year. The event truly celebrates the exceptional individuals within the care sector, bringing the sector together, and we are thrilled that it achieved just that.”

With a strong turnout both in person and virtually, we are delighted to foster unity within the sector through this enjoyable event, which we hope will continue to grow in the future.”
