Nacas is now using TAP (Thank And Praise)
TAP is a free-to-use social thanking platform which enables the public to show their appreciation to the unsung heroes working in social care, healthcare and education in order to create a more positive world, where giving and receiving thanks is the norm not the exception.
In a recent Social Care Perception survey, conducted by the Institute of Health and Care Management, Championing Social Care and TAP, 86% of respondents stated that care workers don’t receive the recognition they deserve.
This tallies with the Care Workers’ Charity ‘Wellbeing Report’ which states that 51% of care workers have considered leaving their role in the past 3 years because of the effect of the job on their mental health.
NACAS (National Association of Care and Support Workers) the professional association for everyone working in care and support in the UK, fully understands how better recognition of the social care sector, can help improve the mental health and wellbeing of care workers.
“It’s vital that our social care colleagues are properly recognised for the incredible work they do every single day and TAP’s thanking platform is an ideal way to achieve this,"
Paul Featherstone, Chairman & Founder of NACAS.
The free-to-use TAP platform allows members of the public to send messages of thanks to NACAS’ staff and its 2,000 members as well as praise the organisation publicly on its own Digital Thanking Wall: www.thankandpraise.com/thankingwall/nacas
TAP is being successfully used at a range of health and social care organisations across the UK, such as The Caring Company, Age Concern Hampshire and the Integrated Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
“TAP is delighted to be supporting NACAS and the wider social care sector to shine a light on the inspirational people looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”
Matt Findel-Hawkins, CEO of TAP.
