Radfield Home Care becomes a Real Living Wage Accredited Employer in Colchester, Frinton & Clacton

Following our ‘Caring for our Carers’ employee welfare pledge at Radfield Home Care Colchester, Frinton & Clacton, we have now taken this commitment one step further and achieved ‘Living Wage Accreditation’ from the Living Wage Foundation for paying a ‘Real Living Wage’.

Supporting Care Professionals to provide exceptional care

Recognising the impact our employees’ wellbeing has on the care services provided to clients, at Radfield Home Care we have always been proud to support staff with employee recognition schemes, a supportive work environment, and high wages – collectively referred to as our ‘Caring for Carers Pledge’. However, Radfield Home Care Colchester, Frinton & Clacton has now taken this commitment to the next level with Living Wage Foundation Accreditation.

This is our promise that our Care Professionals are treated and supported in the best possible way, this ensures our clients are receiving the highest quality of care.

What is the Living Wage in Colchester, Frinton and Clacton?

The Living Wage Foundation recognises employers that voluntarily pay their workforce at least £9.90 per hour.  This ‘Real Living Wage’ is calculated based on the cost of living, and is the recommended hourly wage required in order for employees and their families to live. As well as the natural impact this has on their employees, it has also been proven to have a positive impact on the growth of businesses due to improved reputation, increased employee retention rates, and an ethically-based USP. 

Alex Green, co-founder and director of Radfield Home Care said:

“We have always paid our staff well, however, we are really pleased to be awarded this accreditation as a Living Wage employer, as it reinforces our commitment to ‘Care for our Carers’ and ensures that our clients know that their carers are being looked after.”

The accreditation also supports the much larger challenge home care providers such as Radfield Home Care are facing.  In late 2021, a national recruitment campaign was launched by the UK Government to address the 105,000 vacancies in adult social care in England. The campaign called Made With Care, aims to illustrate how fulfilling it is to work in care, increase the understanding of the variety of roles available and create further awareness of how valuable a role in care can be; making a hugely positive difference to the lives of older people in local communities.
