DHSC extends funding to end immigrant care worker exploitation

International recruitment funding is to continue for another 12 months, with a new focus on ending exploitative international recruitment of care staff, the DHSC has announced.

To build on the £15 million allocated in March 2023, the new funding for England will be used to facilitate in-country matching of overseas recruits whose employment has ended due to unethical practices or sponsorship licence revocation and to prevent and respond to exploitative employment issues.

The funding is available to partnerships including groupings of local providers which cover a region or a sub region. Grant money should be spent in a way that adds value to the region, for example by supporting care provider compliance with UK visas and Immigration processes.
