About us

As the Inspired to Care project, we help social care providers to find and recruit frontline care professionals who have the right values and commitment to our sector. We do this by promoting the rewards of a career in care, signposting potential care workers to information and guidance, and by providing social care employers with tailored recruitment and retention resources.

Michelle Reynolds

External Workforce Lead

Inspired to Care, Leicestershire County Council

I am a manager with 20 plus years experience in management. I also have 30 years' experience in children's social care and 5 in adult social care.

I am proud to say that I led a team of excellent childcare professionals who supported the childcare sector with (among other things) recruitment and retention issues. The childcare sector experiences workforce challenges not dissimilar to adults; low pay, low status and not recognised for their invaluable professional role in supporting and caring for children/adults.

While in adult social care, apart from a brief period of GDPR project management that we will gloss over, I supported the internal adult social care workforce. This was supporting them with recruitment, retention, career pathways and succession planning.

I recognise the pressures that you work under while delivering excellent care and my aim is to support you, hopefully relieve some of that pressure and celebrate the exceptional work you do.

Through collaboration and partnership working we can, together, raise the status of our workforce and be recognised for the professionals we are.

With that in mind if you need any support please get in touch.

David Preece

Social Care Recruitment and Retention Officer

Inspired to Care, Leicestershire County Council

I joined Inspired to Care in August 2021 and have worked in the Social Care Sector since 2010.

Within my role as a Social Care Recruitment and Retention Officer with Inspired To Care, I offer tailored 1:1 support with providers throughout Leicestershire to help with their workforce challenges. As part of this support we construct and deliver monthly topic conferences to support in a focused way to current challenges faced by many providers.

Part of my role is to celebrate care professionals and employer members with the use of social media and via our website. This is also to shine a positive light of the sector and increase diversity in our workforce which is a passion of mine.

In order to promote careers in care with the future workforce I regularly attend school events including career fairs and parents evenings to showcase career paths and the wide variety of roles available in social care.

If you need any help with recruitment or are interested in a career in care please get in touch!

Project Support Assistant

I started my position of Project Support Assistant at Inspired to Care in January 2022. Previous experience that occasioned me to this role was in the services industry, project and event coordination and a dabble in the entertainment sector.

Thus far the position has led me to create online content for our social media pages, coordinate future content, lead liaison officer for our topic conferences and for our ambassadors, and assist various workstreams such as our monthly Newsletter and bi-monthly topic conferences.

This position is my starting role in the social care sector, and I am incredibly fortunate to have such an understanding, dedicated and tight-knit team to show me the essentials of the sector.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to get in touch with the email listed below!
