Dan Archer, UK CEO of Visiting Angels

Dan Archer, CEO of home care agency Visiting Angels UK, has made an appearance on BBC radio to discuss a talent show for domiciliary care workers.

Taking its lead from Championing Social Care’s Care Sector’s Got Talent event, Home Care’s Got Talent is inviting home care workers to put their best foot forward and send in a video audition to the contest’s esteemed mystery judges.

The event’s website reveals that a lucky few will be invited to regional finals, with venues to be announced for the North, Midlands and South, before a grand finale where the winner will take home £1,000 and a holiday for two.

York’s Joseph Rowntree Theatre is selling tickets for 7pm on 8 August for the grand finale, with all proceeds going to the Care Workers’ Charity.

Now, Dan Archer, CEO of Visiting Angels UK, has appeared on BBC Radio Yorkshire to promote the event.

He explained that seeing Michael McIntyre on Saturday Night Takeaway inspired him to create the Home Care’s Got Talent contest.

He added: “I know how amazingly talented home care workers are.

“I’ve watched carers sing unprompted to help people dealing with dementia. I’ve watched people tell a joke to soften the mood. I’ve seen these people be amazing, so we should do just that.”

Posting on LinkedIn, Archer said: “‘Hi Dan, it’s Archie from the BBC. Would you like to come into the studio and share what’s going on with Home Care’s Got Talent?’

“Err, YES!

“The grand final takes place on 8 August at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre in York with 100% of the ticket sales going to the Care Workers’​ Charity’.”
