Terms and Conditions in Social Care - Fair Work survey
Scottish Care's Fair Work in Social Care Group aims to improve the working experience of those in the adult social care workforce, working together to progress the recommendations already outlined in the Fair Work Convention report, which have also been endorsed by the Independent Review of Adult Social Care.
The task of the group is to recommend a minimum set of terms and conditions for those working in social care in line with the principles of Fair Work and to recommend a solution which brings to an end the misuse of zero-hours contracts.
Scottish Care, in collaboration with Coalition of Care & Support Providers Scotland, has launched two short surveys (one aimed at employees and one aimed at employers within health and social care) to allow the Fair Work in Social Care group to understand more about the terms and conditions that exist within the workforce, and what effective voice (that is, how much influence people can have on their working experience) looks like for you.
Both surveys will close on Sunday 23 May 2021. If you have any queries, please contact Karen Hedge, National Director - Scottish Care.
