Executive Director, The Care Workers' Charity
Karolina Gerlich has worked as a care worker for over 12 years. She is proud to represent the social care workforce as the CEO of the National Association of Care & Support Workers. She believes that everybody deserves outstanding care and that care workers should be expected to deliver care with respect and dignity only if they receive them themselves. The National Association of Care & Support Workers is a professional body for the social care workforce. NACAS represents the workforce on a national level and gives the workforce a voice that is essential in social care policymaking. NACAS campaigns for registration of social care workforce, vastly improved training frameworks, better pay and working conditions, and more respect and recognition of the highly skilled and demanding job that caring is.
