Home care commissioning must protect older people’s human rights

Local authorities should change how they commission home care, and in particular ensure that workers are paid the minimum wage, according to a review of care published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

The report warns that the way care is currently commissioned is unsustainable, leading to inadequate pay, poor working conditions for care workers and increasing threats to older people's human rights.
