Good Work for All Helping the Health and Social Care sector
The Greater London Authority has set up the good work for all scheme to help the profound impact on Londoners lives due to Covid-19 on the economy. Unlike previous times, job losses are connected to job rich areas like hospitality and retail. Many Londoners have been furloughed, made redundant or moved into insecure work. Wellbeing and mental health were important issues and have only increase during the last 18 months. The risk that workers, as employment falls and new job opportunities become scarcer, there will be more unemployment, effecting all aspects of peoples lives.
The Good Work for All has been set up to provide extra funding and support to provide Londoners with skills that will help them to access good work. One of the main sectors of this is health and Social Care. They are the largest employers, across a diverse range of occupations and skill levels. It is a central role in everyones lives. Currently there are 119,000 roles available in London for Health and Social Care workers but not the people to fill them.
