Support for care workers and care home residents

This week the government announced £388 million in support for care workers and care home residents, preventing the spread of Covid and keeping residents safe through the coming winter months.

  • Protecting staff and residents in care homes has been a priority throughout the pandemic, and we are committed to supporting them during the winter months ahead.
     
  • That is why the government is using an additional £388 million of taxpayers'money to support care homes in order to prevent the spread of infection this winter – helping to fund testing, infection control measures, and Covid and flu vaccines for care workers.
     
  • This funding will mean care homes have the resources and support they need to keep residents and staff safe through the winter.
