Director of Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern, Dawn Phillips said: “I am so proud of the home care services our carers provide, they are pillars of the community with the support they provide our elderly clients. The Real Living Wage is my way of saying thank you to them for their efforts and recognising their hard work.”

The current minimum government guidelines for hourly rates are dependent on age, whereas the Real Living Wage will be paid to all of Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern care assistants regardless of their age. This will mean Radfield Home Care employees will earn up to £1.85 more than the equivalent age-based minimum wage.

As an accredited Living Wage Employer, Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern is also helping support the national shortage of social care workers by encouraging more individuals to consider working with people in home care jobs as a rewarding career in care.
