Allow disabled people to recruit live-in carers via Health and Care Worker visas

Enable disabled people with care needs to apply for a sponsorship licence and visas for live-in home carers from abroad. To do this, the Home Office needs to treat the disabled person as an approved employer and recognise live-in carers as a permitted occupation for this visa.

1. Amend the Health and Care Bill to protect the NHS. - 38,489 signatures

In 2019/20, the UK had around 112,000 social care vacancies. A live-in carer is classified as unskilled and is on call 24/7. It is a physically and mentally exhausting role requiring stamina, patience and kindness. They need to live in someone else’s home away from their own home, family, partner and social circle. It is not a popular job in the UK. The dependent disabled need to recruit abroad, be self-reliant, spend 100% of budget on actual care and avoid agency fees.
