You’ll organise social activities for people who need care and support and support them to take part.

Activities workers are usually based in care homes or day centres, but you could also work in someone’s home or the community.

Your role might include:
• Talking with people about the types of activities they’d like to do
• Organising activities that are tailored to the needs and abilities of individuals, as well as group activities that will bring individuals together
• Booking external suppliers to provide entertainment
• Organising trips out in the local community, considering transport arrangements and accessibility
• Assisting people to take part in activities.

You don’t necessarily need any qualifications to become an activities worker. It is more important that you have the right values and behaviours to work in social care.

You could do a vocational qualification such as a Diploma in Health and Social Care or continuing professional development qualification such as an award or certificate in activity provision.

If you are looking for progression, there may be opportunities to move into more senior roles relating to activities or you might choose to go into other roles such as a care worker, senior care worker, rehabilitation worker or a personal assistant.
