If you are caring, responsible, and good with people, please contact the county council. No experience is needed.

An urgent appeal has gone out for carers

This could be people who have recently left a role in the care sector or have previous experience in a care setting.

The county council is also asking for people with no care experience to come forward.

A range of training resources, development and support will be provided along with guidance and support from more experienced managers to make sure people are able to carry out their work safely.

County Coun. Graham Gooch, cabinet member for adult services, said: "We're asking people to come forward as care workers, to support vulnerable people during this difficult and uncertain time.

"If you have got experience in the care sector, please get in contact with us. If you have no experience, but you are willing to learn, then please get in touch too. We will make sure you receive the appropriate training and support and will only place people in roles they are comfortable with.

"By using the skills and experience we have here in Lancashire, we can come together as a county and support the most vulnerable people in our communities."
