Rise in staffing costs 'due to National Living Wage' and the row over 300 jobs in north Wales

Charity Anheddau Cyf, which provides care for adults in communities in north Wales, has said it can't balance its books due to the impact of the National Living Wage and National Miniumum Wage on its costs.

This led to the charity ending 300 staff contracts and, Unison says, offering to re-employ staff on inferior terms and conditions.

It is understood Anheddau, which works with social services, health boards and housing associations to provide social care in Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy and Denbighshire, is unable to implement the National Living Wage because the fees it receives from local councils which buy its services do not take into account the additional costs.
