We're adding our voice to the CCPS's Fair Work Campaign!


Welcome to the 4 Steps to Fair Work Campaign

Scotland’s not-for-profit social care sector is beyond crisis. Every day, our member organisations feel the impact that a Scottish Government-funded base rate of pay of just £10.90 per hour is having on staff and services.Many staff are leaving the workforce for better paid jobs elsewhere. New staff are not being recruited. The result? A loss of expertise and potential talent, and a massive undermining of key services – all of which jeopardises support for those who need it most.Our campaign aims to ensure that social care and support workers begin to be properly rewarded and recognised; and the people they support can thrive by getting the support they need at the right times and in the right places.

We’re asking everyone who wants to see Fair Work for social care staff in Scotland to share our 4 Steps to Fair Work and influence the government to step up for social care.

Join us in this journey and add your voice to our campaign.

The 4 Steps to Fair Work 

We’re asking the Scottish Government to take 4 Steps so that social care staff in Scotland can experience Fair Work. They are:

  • Deal with pay inequality: As a first step, implement the promise of a minimum of £12 per hour for social care staff, starting from 1 April 2023.
  • Ensure equal pay for equal work: Apply pay uplifts to staff in all services, not just those in registered adult social care.
  • Value all staff who play their part: Deliver funding packages that value the crucial role of support staff and managers, alongside frontline workers.
  • Give us hope of equality: Publish a timetable by this September to deliver fully on Fair Work in Social Care by 2025.
