We couldn’t do what we do without our brilliant staff and so we have made the decision to increase the hourly rate to start from £9.50 for all Support Workers in our Adult Services teams with effect from 1 January and Senior Support Worker rates to start from £9.80.
Every year we are reliant on our funding authorities to provide fee increases in order that we can pass this benefit on to our teams. We have made this decision in advance of the change to the National Minimum Wage to this hourly rate from April 2022 and anticipate that, from April, our funders will be preparing to recognise this increased cost for organisations like MacIntyre.
We continue to offer our staff specialist training, qualifications and career progression, often cited as a key reason why people join us and why people stay with us.
This salary has been welcomed by our existing Support Workers and will also help us to attract brilliant new people to join the team.
