One of the most pressing issues facing social care workers, and the vital services they provide, is chronic underfunding by the central government. 

Budget cuts to local authorities, which are then passed on to social care providers, mean that far too many services are run on a shoestring. 

This is bad for staff, whose wages and working conditions are pushed down, and for the vulnerable people they care for; who receive inadequate care such as 15 minute calls.  

It is because of these consistently low standards that Bluebird Care Hull & Beverley refuses to become a “preferred provider” for the local council. 

Instead we focus on providing friendly, excellent care which emphasises dignity and respect.  

Take the government’s survey here.
