Make social care a free, well-funded, publicly provided service! Sign our statement
We strongly agree with Nadia Whittome MP, sacked from her frontline care job for speaking out about PPE shortages, that the deep crises in social care “require a reckoning with decades of underfunding, fragmentation and privatisation, and deep change in how our health and social care systems are run… a huge injection of public money, and a model based on democratic public ownership, so that local people, workers and service users can have a say in how it is run”. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/may/07/i-worked-care-home-sacked-speaking-out-ppe-coronavirus

All aspects of social care should become a free, well-funded, publicly-provided service. We want our unions and the Labour Party to launch a real campaign for this (which is in line with policy passed at last year’s Labour conference).

That must be combined with support for care workers’ campaigns, for unionisation and for better pay, terms and conditions, and safety. Immediately and crucially, we need measures to ensure adequate PPE for all working in or attending care homes and home care, organised accountably through the public sector; and the right of all workers who need to to self-isolate on full pay.

Anything less means failing in our duty to the millions of people who in one way or another rely on the care system.
