Social Care is in crisis. Nearly half a million people are waiting for a care assessment, while there are 152,000 vacancies in the sector.

This can’t go on, we need to Fix Care For All so that every older person can live later life well.

Help us to #FixCareForAll

That’s why we are calling for a Social Care Council:

  • A new independent body that will represent care workers
  • To raise the esteem and profile of care work as a profession, through registration and setting standards
  • People working in care can come together and put forward the changes they want to see.

Support our call for a Social Care Council

A Social Care Council would be a focal point for the care sector - a heavyweight voice able to put the needs of the sector on the agenda for the government of the day. MHA are specifically pushing for professional registration for all adult social care workers, with a professional body established to represent them. This must be fully funded by the state and may look at:

  • Pay scales
  • Accreditation and training
  • Sector-wide recruitment drives
  • Public awareness and perception.

Our Fix Care For All campaign will raise awareness of the issues care workers face each and every day when providing care. Fix Care For All will raise the voice of our colleagues and demand that the Government truly values the 1.5 million people working in care.

If you would like to take part in the campaign, would like further information or have any questions, please do contact our Campaigns team:
