First Minister Mark Drakeford has confirmed that kitchen and domestic staff working in care homes in Wales will receive the £500 extra payment for social care staff.

The payment – announced for the social care sector last month – will also be extended to agency staff and nursing staff employed in care homes, as well as personal assistants and domiciliary care workers providing care to people in their own homes.

Arrangements are now being put in place to start making the extra payment to tens of thousands of social care staff across Wales.
