Crisis in Home Care

UNISON has been campaigning on the crisis in homecare for a long time. Due to government cuts, councils are increasingly outsourcing the care of the most vulnerable people in our society – the sick, the old and the disabled. It results in illegally low wages and 15-minute visits.

UNISON have made a short film highlighting this issue you can view it at: http://www.unison.org.uk/news/article/2017/04/15-minute-care-makeover-from-hell/

A petition has been started asking for more funding for social care: https://action.unison.org.uk/page/7454/petition/1
