The #BetterPay4SocialCare Action Week will be taking place from Monday 6th to Friday 10th September. To help raise awareness of care worker pay, 28 social care organisations across the country will be urging people to sign the petition.
The petition will be delivered on 21st September on the steps of HM Treasury. The organisations behind the campaign are petitioning Government to ensure care workers receive a minimum of the Real Living Wage. Campaigners said the pandemic has revealed to the nation just how much we rely on social care workers and the risks that they take to fulfil their role to people they support and to society.
