There has never been a more urgent time for Government to back a fair deal for under-valued social care workers – the forgotten frontline.

In addition to lending our backing to the Better Pay for Social Care campaign, Leeds Autism Services have also pledged our support to the Future Social Care Coalition. This cross-party coalition aims for fair pay for care workers, and is urging the government to take immediate action to deliver:

  • Parity of esteem for the social care sector with the NHS: if social care is to improve and increase health and wellbeing outcomes, the social care service must no longer be treated as the ‘forgotten frontline’
  • A comprehensive social care workforce strategy designed to generate skills training, professionalism and improve pay and conditions for social care workers
  • A substantial and immediate funding boost for social care and, in the longer term, a social care funding solution that is both equitable and sustainable

There are several ways you can support the campaign:
