The Care Workers’ Charity & Social Care Representatives EUSS Letter to PM
The Care Workers’ Charity has joined with 4 of the UK’s main care representatives writing to the Prime Minister to warn that EU care workers are at risk of losing their legal status and rights in just 1 weeks time on the EU Settlement Scheme deadline of June 30th.
Signatories include Care England, National Care Association, Scottish Care and the Institute of Health and Social Care Management.
The letter urges Prime Minister to consider the future of the care sector which is at stake without immediate action.
“The Care Workers’ Charity is extremely concerned about the impact of the immigration policy on the social care workforce- there are already huge staff shortages in the sector, and the additional shortages caused directly by this policy will have a devastating impact of on the wellbeing of existing care teams, and on the quality of care provided. It is therefore urgent and necessary for the policy to be changed.” – Karolina Gerlich, CEO of The Care Workers’ Charity.
