Age Uk Report on Mental Health of Care Workers during the Pandemic

Age UK has published a report that find that social care workers’ mental health has been damaged by the work they have had to do during the pandemic.

The report finds that 8% of respondents to a survey of care workers were told that they would receive no pay at all if they had to self-isolate or if they were off sick. The report calls for social care workers to receive equal pay with the same roles in the NHS.
