The Living Wage for Care Workers

You may be aware of some of the problems with Social Care and the Government’s austerity cuts to Local Authorities and how this is affecting care services.

So, may I advise you about the petition – Pay all employed carers the Living Wage.

Please support the petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/236151

For more information please see attached.

Hopefully this will inform the Government and in doing so they will increase the funding to local authorities. These authorities can then contract to Care Service Providers on an increased rate so they can then pay their care workers at least the Living Wage, currently 9.00 per hour, outside of London, London being 10.55 per hour.

This petition is just the start as is paying all care workers the Living Wage, for good quality care needs to be achieved in all instances of care and then be sustained.

This is going to be a long, long road to cover, but if we all work together it is achievable.

Thank you

Chris
