Care work is perceived as difficult, dangerous but the work is also perceived at the lowest work within our social grading.
We pay people low wages, minimal training to do the most demanding and difficult jobs. 122k short of Carers now and need another 800k by 2035.
Currently poor working conditions, pay, does not attracting and keep people in the profession.
We all need to face the truth that we are going to need these people to look after, clean us and keep our dignity when we are older.
We need nearly a million more people to want to do these jobs within 15 years.
