Ask your MP to help win a Living Wage for care workers

This week during Living Wage Week we're celebrating the huge impact the Living Wage campaign has had. 20 years of Living Wage campaigning.  £1.6 billion back into the pockets of low paid workers. 300,000 workers getting a pay rise this week the new rates of  £9.90 and £11.05 in London.

But not for me.

As a care worker, every day I see how important the fight for a real Living Wage still is for far too many people. New research published just this week shows that 56% of care workers skip meals due to low pay.

Enough is enough.

We look after the most vulnerable in society, but we have been forgotten. Despite our calls, the government hasn’t acted – that's why we need to keep the pressure on to call for funding for a Living Wage in social care.

The government has so far refused to acknowledge the debt that this country owes us. Join me in putting pressure on our MPs to bring this to the government’s attention. Use the template letter to ask your MP to write to the Minister of State for Care and Mental Health, Gillian Keegan MP.

Thank you  - your solidarity in this time of crisis means so much to me and my care worker friends. Together we can win a wage that care workers can live on.
