Home care workers across the UK are invited to showcase their unique talents in a new talent show exclusively for those in the home care sector.

Homecare’s Got Talent (HCGT) seeks to celebrate the remarkable individuals who devote their lives to caring for others, by providing them with a platform to display their talents beyond their caregiving roles.

HCGT welcomes homecare workers from businesses nationwide to demonstrate their skills, whether in singing, dancing, juggling, acting, miming, or any other unique talent. Employers in the homecare sector can register their carers for this event at www.homecaresgottalent.co.uk.

Dan Archer, UK CEO of Visiting Angels, emphasised the importance of recognising the diverse talents within the homecare workforce. “Homecare workers are some of the hardest working and most talented people in social care,” said Archer. “HCGT is a great way to ensure recognition for carers across the entire sector.”

Regional Judging and National Finals

Archer highlighted the need for quick thinking and versatility in homecare. “When you support people in their own home, you need to think fast and utilise sometimes remarkable talents to best support the people that you care for. We want to recognise their talents beyond caregiving and truly celebrate what makes our carers unique.”

Over the next four months, HCGT will host regional judging events in London, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, and Scotland. Talented homecare workers will have the chance to advance to the national final, competing for a grand prize package that includes £1,000 in cash, an all-inclusive holiday for two, and the opportunity to perform at a live event before an audience of thousands.

Alex Green, Managing Director of Radfield Home Care, expressed excitement for the event. “We can’t wait to see the amazing things that our nation’s brilliant care professionals have to show everyone. It’s so important to take every opportunity to celebrate care professionals who work hard every day to make other people’s lives better.”

Celebrating Everyday Heroes

A panel of judges, including some well-known household names, will review the video submissions from homecare workers. Chosen participants will advance to the regional finals, hosted in the North, Midlands, and South of England.

Amrit Dhaliwal, CEO and Founder of Walfinch, shared his enthusiasm for the initiative. “This is about celebrating care workers and all of those within the sector that make a huge change to the lives of millions of people. I’m thrilled to be able to showcase how much fun we have in homecare.”

Cristina Grancea, Co-CEO of Sylvian Care, also highlighted the hidden talents of homecare professionals. “Home care professionals excel in their dedication to caring for others. But beyond their exceptional caregiving skills, they possess a wealth of hidden talents. Join us in celebrating these remarkable individuals through HCGT and discover the extraordinary in the everyday.”

Caregivers are encouraged to submit their talent videos via the website or WhatsApp to 07510 928923. This is an opportunity for homecare workers to shine and be recognised for their unique contributions both within and beyond their caregiving roles.
