WELCOME TO THE GREAT CARE CHALLENGE


Where outstanding care is celebrated, one challenge at a time.


Join me on a journey of personal and professional growth through weekly fun challenges designed for care professionals or unpaid carers.

Earn badges, enhance your professional profile, and mark yourself as a standout caregiver. 

The Great Care Challenge is not just a gimmick; it’s a movement towards a future where care professionals are recognised for their exceptional skills and dedication, that directly impacts the care they provide.

Embrace continuous improvement, take time to reflect and make a positive difference in the lives you touch.

At the heart of my mission is the belief that continuous learning, reflection, and improvement are the cornerstones of exceptional care provision. 

Weekly fun challenges designed specifically for care professionals.

NEVER identify customers or clients by name or any form of identifier in your feedback

HOW IT WORKS

Is the challenge free?

Yes, its absolutely free.

How does the challenge actually work?

Every week, we'll issue a new challenge via email or SMS, which will provide you with a real-world care topic and a choice of 3 different scenario prompts based on a made-up client.  You do not have to participate in every challenge (but the more you do, the deeper your level of knowledge becomes, the more badges you earn for your profile).

The goal of each challenge is to get you to take time to think about the care you are providing, and enhance your skills.

You'll then complete a very short journal entry to confirm you have participated, and the impact you have made in that specific week’s theme. 

Once verified, you will be sent a badge that can be displayed on your unique profile page that employers can view (if set to public).

At the end of each month, we'll review all of the completed submissions for that month and select a winner (who has completed all of the previous month's challenges) who will receive a £20 Amazon gift card and a little goody bag (as more participants enter, we hope to increase the prizes!).

How do I participate in the challenge?

Sign up to receive notifications of new challenges via email or SMS. Each week there is a specific theme, for example, for example resilience, safeguarding, Mental Capacity Act - all you have to do is choose which scenario you will complete that week.

Once you have completed the challenge, you submit a simple mini journal entry which is you sharing a few words explaining what you did, how it impacted your client, or you, and anything you learnt or would do differently.

It should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete the scenario and your journal entry.

While the goal is to complete the challenge, we want you to have fun (but be professional so no client names!).

Can multiple people work as a group for a single submission?

At the moment, this is not possible. However, we are working on this and if you have any suggestions as to how this could work do let me know!

What if I am new to care?

Then this is perfect for you! It's bite sized learning, done in a slightly different, fun way. If you are not sure about the scenarios or what they mean, you can always reach out to me on socials or email lorraine@lorrainehunt.com

What are the rules on winning the monthly or annual prizes?

To be eligible to win the Amazon gift card, you must submit your completed journal entry no later than 11:59 PM (UK time) on the specific date for when entries for that month’s challenges must be submitted.

You must have completed all of the challenges for the previous month (including journal entries that show reflection and what you have learnt) to be entered into the monthly draw.

Each submission will be evaluated on various criteria, including but not limited to the overall completion of the challenge, the journal entry to show impact to client, to company, to yourself, lessons learnt, etc. Remember, because each challenge is different, some level of subjectiveness can be expected when picking a winner.

Only one winner will be chosen for each challenge, and once someone has been selected as a winner, they won't be eligible to win for a minimum of three months after; however, they may continue participating in any challenge during that time.

The rules are subject to change without warning, although I will endeavour to publish any rule changes in the future. The idea being the Amazon gift card and goody bag are a small token of appreciation, with the main idea being learning through the challenges, not participation to win, right?

Can I participate in past challenges?

Yes! The goal of the Great Care Challenge isn't just to create a new challenge every week.

If you want to use a past challenge to help you develop your skills, you are free to pick any previous challenges.

Although participation in past challenges means you won't be eligible for winning that challenge, we encourage you to complete your journal entry to increase your knowledge and learning, as well as gain a badge for your Great Care Challenge profile

I have an idea for a challenge, what do I do?

Get in touch with me! Email lorraine@lorrainehunt.com and put the title 'Challenge idea' - I'd love participants to decide on future challenges.

I'm a care business owner and/or Registered Manager - can I sign my whole team up?

Absolutely! Email me at lorraine@lorrainehunt.com and we can arrange to bulk enrol your team, and provide you with a company supporter badge.


Please note we reserve the right to change, alter, edit, or cancel the challenge and contest rules, criteria, and prizes at any time and for any reason without advance notice.
