The article focuses on the regulatory fees for home care workers to join the vetting and barring scheme of the Great Britain Independent Safeguarding Authority. The United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) has warned that the home care sector in England, Wales and Northern Ireland faces a recruitment crisis unless councils take into account rising regulatory costs in their contracts with providers. UKHCA believes that the regulatory fees will cost the sector 18 million pound over five years.
