Rachel has been on the BBC again. As well as running Cloud 9, Rachel is a Director of the Essex Independent Care Association (EICA), which supports Care Providers in Essex. Rachel was asked to take part in last Friday’s Dave Monk show on BBC Essex on behalf of EICA.
A report has been produced that has calculated the cost to Essex County Council of implementing the National Living Wage: £300million over the next 5 years. Rachel was asked to speak about the impact of the increase in wages on independent companies and discussed the concerns within our industry around how this will be funded.
