Sign our petition – Let our carers keep every penny
The Welsh Labour Government has announced social care staff across Wales will receive a special one-off payment of £500, as further recognition for their work on the frontline of this crisis. This includes ancillary staff such as cooks and cleaners, as well as nursing staff employed by care homes.
We want every penny of this £500 to be in the hands of those care home and domiciliary care workers who have done so much for so many during the coronavirus pandemic.
The UK Tory Government has said it won’t make this payment tax-free. This means our hardworking social care workforce won’t be able to keep every penny of this special £500 payment.
Our social care workers are providing an exceptional service – an exception should be made in this case.
Tell the Tories to reward our social care workforce in full.
