The President of ADSS Cymru, Nicola Stubbins has underlined the seriousness of the current pressure on social workers and care workers and praised the sector for its resourcefulness, in a report published today by BBC Wales.

The President said, "Social care staff are stretched now to a point I've never seen before and at this moment in time, stretched far more than any point during this entire pandemic.

"They are exhausted, but they keep going.

"The pressures of being able to maintain service delivery is becoming more and more challenging and with certain aspects we are only able to cover some critical services - that isn't anything that anybody ever came into this job to do, to have to choose between who you may or may not be able to help."
