Social care

Community is proud of its diversity and equality. We represent members and their families across all industries and sectors in the UK. Unlike many other unions that specialise in specific job markets, Community is proud to be an inclusive organisation; welcoming anyone as a member, regardless of the sector they work in, how they work, or where they live. In this section we talk about some of the sectors we currently support.

Community is committed to representing workers in the field of social care in private providers or the voluntary sector. With the British Union of Social Work Employees as part of Community we have a unique insight into the social care sector.

We recognise that social care is rapidly growing and changing and that this brings new challenges and uncertainties for social care workers.

We know that workers in this sector are often overworked, under paid and working alone. We want to deliver a living wage for everyone in social care and that employers and government recognise the value and concerns of social care workers.
