Social care: a new deal for the workforce

Organised by the TUC as part of TUC Congress 2021

The Covid-19 pandemic has been the ultimate stress-test for adult social care, and shown how essential social care is to the fabric of our society. The structural problems in the sector – privatisation, low wages, high insecurity – that trade unions have been concerned about for decades have been thrown into sharp, heart-breaking focus. Politicians have been playing political football with the sector for decades but now is the time for a new settlement for social care – and that must start with a new deal for the care workforce.

Chair: Sian Elliott, senior policy officer, OSSD
