CFW joins calls to keep EU social care workers

CFW has been asked to join the Cavendish Coalition to help lobby the UK government about foreign workers in the NHS and social care sector post Brexit.

Mary Wimbury, senior policy officer for CFW, said: “The coalition, which includes the UK Health Care Assoication and Care England, is calling for guarantees that EU citizens currently working in social care will not lose their right to work here after Britain leaves the EU.

“We are also concerned that social care employers continue to be able to recruit from abroad if they have staff shortages which they are unable to fill from the UK workforce.”
