The Scottish Parliament’s Covid-19 Committee is examining the Social Care Staff Support Fund. This was set up because so many staff in care Homes had no access to decent sick pay. Designed as a measure to protect residents and staff alike.

Despite the urgent need which prompted  these regulations we have had to inform the committee that a significant number of care home employers are not making use of the scheme.
