Provide regular, weekly coronavirus testing for Adult Day Support Workers
Adult Day Support Workers are unable to access regular testing for coronavirus, putting them, the adults they care for and the families of both at risk.
This is both unfair and hard to understand when testing capacity has been dramatically expanded with lateral flow tests being rolled out.
Hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people rely on Adult Day Support to allow them to live their lives to the full and achieve their potential.
Individuals with dementia, learning difficulties and mental health conditions rely on the care provided by Adult Day Support Workers, as do their families.
We call for action to address this missing part of the testing system to ensure the lifeline these vital services provide can continue safely.
