SOCIAL CARE STAFF TO RECEIVE A RISE IN HOURLY RATE:
The Scottish Government has announced that all care support staff are to receive an increse to their hourly rate as of December 1st 2021. This is a much needed boost to all support workers who are vastly uderpaid for the important role they play in providing care for vulnerable people.
This comes after the UK Government annouced their plans to help fund Health & Social Care in the UK by increasing National Insurance contributions from next April 2022.
From April 2023 National Insurance contributions will return to its current rate and instead, a new tax called the Health and Social Care Levy will be introduced.
