UNISON has been pushing hard to get you the pay boost you deserve, and we’ve finally got ministers to act.

Our campaign on staffing shortages forced the government to announce a workforce retention and recruitment fund. This won’t fix low wages, but it can make a difference in the short term.

Local councils responsible for adult social care can access the money until the end of March 2022. This is to fund bonuses, overtime, bringing forward planned pay rises for care staff and other initiatives.

Some councils are already taking action. For example, UNISON has negotiated raises and bonuses for care workers in Somerset.

We’ve written to every councillor in the country asking them to boost your pay, but we need your help to keep up the pressure.

It’s so easy to do. Our online tool will find your councillors for you and auto-generate the email text. You just need to add your name and press send.

It’s crucial the money reaches front line care workers and fast.

Together, UNISON and care workers can change social care for the better. Thank you for the incredible work you are doing to care for people and keep them safe.
