Janine Morgan, managing director at Eastgate Care, said: “It’s time care workers were recognised for the care and support they deliver.

"It isn’t and easy job, but it is a rewarding one, and we felt that needed to be reflected in our care teams’ pay packets.

“At a time when there is a shortage of most key workers we recognise that our care teams need the additional reassurance that they are valued and much needed.

"That is why we have announced the Christmas pay rise, which will hit pay packets just in time for Christmas.”
