Have Your Say on Brexit’s Impact on Social CareType: Call to action | Consultations | News
Published on: 28th October 2021
Since 2017 Camphill Scotland, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) and our other partners across the UK, have been campaigning for an independent review into how Brexit and the ending of freedom of movement will affect the health and social care sectors. At it’s height, this campaign received the support of over 100 organisations across the 4 Nations.
The UK Government has heeded the call, and has now commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to undertake a review into how the ending of freedom of movement has impacted the adult social care sectors across the UK.
Emma Walker, Director said:
The MAC’s evaluation is a welcome development. It will provide a significant opportunity to highlight the valued contribution which employed staff and volunteers from across the World make to the Camphill communities and to charities across the UK, and the obstacles which the ending of freedom of movement has created in the health and social care sectors, and in other settings, for charities across the UK.
Consultation deadline approaches
The UK Government’s investigation into the impact of Brexit on health and social care, and on the health and social care workforce, and into the long term consequences for the health and social care sectors across the UK are important issues.
Will your organisation respond to the MAC review before 29th October?
