Protest for Care - Saturday 23rd May ✊
In the face of an unprecedented national crisis the UK government has consistently failed the millions who receive care and the carers who work tirelessly to support them. Twenty five percent of Covid deaths are now in care settings and carers are twice as likely to die of Covid as the general population.
Political decisions worsened this crisis, we need urgent political action to help to lift us out of it.
Our protest calls for: guaranteed PPE and a real living wage for every care worker, and urgent funding for the sector. Help us make this a reality for care workers and those who rely on care.
Join the rally at 2pm and hear from:

Why is it important to post on social media:
Political decisions worsened the care crisis and we must create pressure for urgent political action to help to lift us out of it. To do this we need to keep this issue in the media and online and we need to demonstrate that there is a political cost to the government for continuing to ignore and underfund care - participating will help to do both.
Covid means that we can’t physically gather and protest, but we can still show the overwhelming support for urgent action by marching remotely and making noise on social media and in our communities.
