We recognise the true value of homecare for all of us in our society. We work to ensure homecare receives the recognition and investment it deserves.
To do this, we represent homecare at every level of government, with regulators and the media, as well as lead prominent campaigns to raise the profile of homecare.
Successes achieved for homecare during the COVID-19 pandemic include:
priority access to the COVID-19 vaccination programme for homecare workers
additional funds for councils from central Government
guidance from ADASS and the LGA for councils to increase providers’ fees
access to Government supplies of PPE for all homecare services (extended to March 2022)
temporary waiver of VAT on PPE
key worker status for homecare workers
the extension of the death in service scheme to social care staff
the extension of the ICF2 and ICF3 to include homecare.
