I saw this petition on change.org and it really struck a cord with me. I have said in previous blogs that I believed carers should receive an hourly rate of between £12.50 and £15 per hour. Carers earning minimum wage, worrying over paying their bills, it’s not right. In my view all carers deserve a decent wage, proper sick pay and all the PPE they need, especially with Covid-19 and all its implications. They are invaluable. Thank you for reading this blog, see petition link.
