The National Care Association says the Euro referendum result means Britain must now ensure that all possible steps are taken to deliver the manifesto pledges by politicians on the winning side.
The association says it is crucial that the country works together to create solutions which are positive and sustainable.
The NCA’s executive chairman, Nadra Ahmed said: “The challenges of recruiting and retaining social care staff has created substantial issues for providers, it is therefore crucial that, as we plan our exit of the EU member states over the coming weeks and months, we remain focused on the sector’s challenges.
“National Care Association will continue to ensure that we engage with government on the many fronts which will impact on the small and medium sized care providers. It is essential for our country to demonstrate that, as a society we recognise the value of essential care and support services for the frailest and most vulnerable members of our community.”
