Future Social Care Coalition

Lilian Looney

“I work in social care.

We are supposed to be trained almost to the level of nurses and yet we get paid just above minimum wage.

We are at the coal face of abuse from families for the shortfalls of the companies we work for – who make us work on a shoestring budget.

We have to work with less and less staff. When companies need to save money, it is always at the staff’s expense.

We should be paid as skilled Labour and not as unskilled Labour. We are certainly not unskilled.”
