Commenting on IPPR’s paper ‘Fair Care: A Workforce Strategy for Social Care’, Janet Morrison, Chief Executive of Independent Age, the older people’s charity, said:
“Every day care workers go the extra mile to help older people live well in later life. Yet the value we give to their work is a national scandal that has now reached crisis point.
“An undervalued and unmotivated workforce has a direct impact on the older people they support. We urgently need a social care revolution putting its workforce at the heart. Failure to do so will result in vulnerable older people getting a raw deal.”
