Addressing Social Care Staffing Shortages Amidst Stricter Immigration Policies

Dec 6, 2023 | News |

On Monday, the 4th of December, UK Home Secretary James Cleverly announced plans to reduce migration levels, which would prevent around 300,000 overseas care workers from being able to migrate to the UK with dependents from the spring of 2024.

The changes announced pose significant challenges, particularly regarding recruiting overseas care workers. The increased minimum salary thresholds and restrictions on bringing family dependents to the UK are a concern for the existing staffing shortages within the social care sector.

We understand the tremendous pressure that care providers face not only from the latest announcements but also due to difficulty reaching residents due to time, travel and location limitations.

GenieConnect® is a remote care platform that delivers results in managing care more efficiently by avoiding up to 10 hours of care per recipient each week.
