Modern Day Slavery

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has highlighted modern slavery as a growing issue in the UK care sector.
There have been cases reported and investigated in respect Modern Day slavery which can include exploitation, physical abuse, financial abuse including fees and unpaid wages, accommodation and overcrowded living conditions and no work offered. These are a few of the concerns that have been raised for international recruits.
There has been a surge since care workers were added to the Shortage Occupation List in December 2021.
Providers need to ensure that they are taking proactive steps to fully understand, identify, monitor, and mitigate the growing risks in this area.
