The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everyone, and particularly those working to protect Devon’s most vulnerable residents. Now, as the second anniversary of the first lockdown approaches, the Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection (Thurs 17 March) gives us the opportunity to honour the vital work the social care sector has done to keep people safe and well, and to remember the people working in social care who we have sadly lost during the pandemic.

You can take part in the day by displaying the county’s flower, the primrose, as a tribute to a lost loved one, a thank you to a care worker who has provided vital support to you or someone you know, or a well done to a colleague who worked hard to help keep the people they support safe during the pandemic.

There are special ‘Devon primrose’ Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection graphics available here to download to use on social media, as well as an A4 posters to print, colour-in and proudly display.
