Radfield Home Care Liverpool North has increased its hourly rate to £9.30 for its home care jobs, in line with the latest Real Living Wage recommendation.

As part of the organisation’s unique home care employee satisfaction programme, the Caring for our Carers™ pledge, Radfield Home Care Liverpool North increased its hourly rate for its home care jobs to £9.30 in 2020. This is inline with the latest lift in pay rates by the Living Wage Foundation, calculated each year independent of the government's guidelines on the true cost of living and income requirements for employees and their families to live well.

Understanding and rewarding the valuable work care assistants undertake every day in the UK, Radfield Home Care operates its Caring for our Carers™ pledge across the country to support its home care professionals. As well as providing excellent rates of pay such as the Real Living Wage, Radfield Home Care Liverpool North also offers career progression opportunities, employee recognition schemes and a supportive work environment to its care team.

Director of Radfield Home Care Liverpool North, Dave Bellis said: “Here at Radfield we are absolutely focused on providing the highest standard of care to our clients, and in order to do that the commitment of our home carers is commendable. They work extremely hard to ensure vulnerable people in the Liverpool area are well cared for, so we make sure that we look after them in return. Paying the Real Living Wage means our care teams are some of the highest paid carers, but rightfully so as they do a fantastic job every day.”



The current minimum government guidelines for hourly rates are dependent on age, whereas the Radfield Home Care Liverpool North 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 Liverpool North 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.
