UNISON urges Swansea care workers to provide evidence for Covid inquiry

Care staff in Swansea are being urged to share stories of working through the pandemic for the UK Covid inquiry.

UNISON is gathering evidence for the UK-wide inquiry and is giving care workers the opportunity to anonymously share their experiences of what it was like working on the Covid frontline.

The union is running an event from 10am-3pm on Thursday (8 February) at its Swansea office* where care staff can share their experiences. Their stories will be form part of the union’s submission to the UK-wide inquiry.

Care worker Pat Jones said: “This is the chance for care workers to share what it was like on the frontline in the care sector during the pandemic. It’s so important that that their stories are told and lessons are learned.”

UNISON Cymru/Wales head of social care Mark Turner said: “Care workers need the opportunity to share what it was like working through Covid and the impact it had on them. This event guarantees them the opportunity to share their experiences anonymously.”

– * The event is from 10am-3pm at UNISON, Suite A, The Courtyard, Wind Street, Swansea SA1 1DP.
