Community Integrated Care has always looked to challenge the status quo to make social care better for everyone. Over the past few years, our charity has been at the forefront of many important initiatives working directly with the UK’s most influential people.

Unfair To Care

Since 2021, we’ve campaigned for fair reward and recognition across the social care sector through our Unfair To Care campaign series. Through landmark reports, we’ve revealed the extent of the social care pay gap and the continual workforce crisis faced by our sector.

We partnered with the world’s leading experts in job evaluation – Korn Ferry – to conduct an independent assessment of the role of a frontline Support Worker, objectively assessing its true value across sectors. Our findings provided a first of its kind, in-depth analysis which debunked the myth of social care as a “low skilled” profession.

Support our campaign today.


Standing up for Social Care

Our Community Integrated Care colleagues have been regular visitors at Westminster, showcasing innovations from our charity whilst also meeting separately with Cabinet and Shadow ministers to represent our charity on the future of social care. We’ve attended party conferences to ensure the voices in social care are heard.

We're continuing to campaign for a fairer deal for social care

Frontline social care workers continue to lose out, with a 36% pay gap remaining between them and equivalent roles in the NHS. That's £7,617 a year. This pay gap increases to 55.2% when you factor in wider entitlements such as pension benefits. With 95% of the public saying that care workers are important to society, and first of it's kind cross-party polling by YouGov showing 77% of MPs believe social care workers are paid unfairly, we're calling for change.

We want organisations like ours to be given the opportunity to work in partnership with the Government to solve the issues facing social care.

Fighting for our people

It’s widely reported that the social care sector needs proper recognition, funding and respect for its vital contribution to society. Community Integrated Care has led the way in championing social care, and the commitment and dedication of those who work with it.

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, our charity was a key voice in the media, partnering with the National Care Forum to launch key research that unearthed the true impact of Covid-19 in care. We have been part of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Coronavirus highlighting the need for better testing, PPE provision and the need for the people we support to see their loved ones.
