Care Makers

Caremakers compassion in practice

The Care Makers programme was setup in 2012 at the time of the Chief Nursing Officer's Conference. Care Makers are volunteers who act as ambassadors for the 6Cs and are made up of colleagues from the health and social care sector, from care assistants, student nurses, midwives, physiotherapists through to HR directors, medical staff and board members.

Care Makers are selected for demonstrating passion and a commitment to spreading the word about and the 6Cs across the NHS and beyond. We now have a network of over 1400 Care Makers located across the country.
