Wales care staff to receive £1,000 pay bonus

Care staff in Wales are to receive a £1,000 payment as a recruitment/retention incentive.

This comes from a £96m investment in social care, which is in addition to the £43 million announced in December to introduce the real living wage.

Both uplifts should be processed in people’s pay from April to June. The payment does not extend to agency staff

The Welsh Government is also funding a national recruitment campaign.
