Give carers and ALL care home staff the £500 bonus - Leanne Wood - Rhondda Plaid Cymru

Give carers and ALL care home staff the £500 bonus

This pandemic has forced us to look at which jobs in our society are essential, and those who look after and support the most vulnerable in our society deserve to be recognised for the incredible contributions they make.

Please click on the image below to go to our petition page. After you sign, please share the petition and try and persuade others to sign.


We are calling on the Welsh Health Minister Vaughan Gething to ensure that all unpaid carers receive the £500 bonus payment promised to other carers.

We are further calling on the Senedd to give an equal payment to all staff who work in a care home setting – including cleaners and the catering staff who put their own safety at risk every day they go to work. They deserve to be treated as equal members of the team of people who run care homes.
