Future Social Care Coalition

“Understaffed, low pay, a reduced holiday for a pay rise, working hours are soul destroying, finish at 10 pm then start at 7 am the next day.

Most people walk around like a zombie due to lack of sleep or the fact they have to do 15-hour shifts just to survive.

Our clients’ timetables/schedules are obliterated due to lack of consistent staff, lack of staff or lack of 2 to 1 staff meaning they don’t go out due to the restraints put on them by their care package which is normally out of date so the company can still claim the staff hours.”
