Public services union UNISON has endorsed one of the key conclusions of a report on social care from the non-profit organization, the National Care Forum. The report emphasizes the point that quality care depends on the level of resources provided including the pay and conditions of social care workers. UNISON's response highlighted the continuing problems of low pay and high staff turnover in the sector and the need to improve pay and conditions as well as training provision.
