We are adding our voice to the new fair work campaign for Scotland's social care workforce - 4 Steps to Fair Work.
The campaign is co-ordinated by the Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS) and launched late June.
Alongside our fellow CCPS members we shared our experiences of the pressures we currently face.
Among these is rates of pay for social care staff. So, the campaign calls on the Scottish Government to take these 4 steps to delivering fair work:
- Deal with pay inequality: put in place the promise of a minimum of £12 per hour for social care staff, starting from 1 April 2023.
- Ensure equal pay for equal work: Apply pay uplifts to staff in all services, not just those in registered adult social care.
- Value all staff who play their part: Deliver funding packages that value the crucial role of support staff and managers, alongside frontline workers.
- Give us hope of equality: Publish a timetable by this September to deliver fully on Fair Work in Social Care by 2025.
Add you voice, here's how you can support the 4 Steps to Fair Work campaign.
