A petition calling on the government to deliver better pay for social care workers has been taken to the Treasury by a coalition we are proud to be part of - with Brian Steel, who we support, making the trip to London to represent us and campaign for change.

An important update to share with you - from 2pm on Tuesday 14th September many of our phone numbers are changing as we switch to a new, improved phone system.

Please use these new numbers - and save them into your phones now! (Please also note that the phone numbers for our Central Office & Fordsfield remain unchanged).

 

We are supporting the #BetterPay4SocialCare campaign, urging the government to increase funding to local authorities so that social care providers can pay workers what they deserve - a minimum of the real living wage. 

The campaign is running an Action Week from September 6th to 10th. Join us in showing your support by signing the petition and contacting your local MP to call for change.
