  • Living wage puts Shropshire care industry at risk of 'crisis' - Shropshire Business Today
    2020 SPIC chair David Coull has held an initial meeting with Telford MP Lucy Allan and is writing to the county s other Conservative MPs urging them to press the Chancellor George Osborne to review funding settlements given to local councils for care before it impacts on vulnerable adults and elderly people He said It is absolutely right that we should pay carers a Living Wage and we support this without reservation The sad thing is that the New Living Wage will simply become the new Minimum Wage and therefore do little to help providers recruit and retain staff which is a key issue in the industry But the majority of businesses will not be able to absorb this increase on the basis of the current funding levels in Shropshire Wages make up well over 65 per cent of turnover and never have care providers had such a limited margin It s a disaster waiting to happen Six homes have already closed in Shropshire this year removing valuable places and support from the care network it s no underestimation to say that this impending crisis could put care services in the county in serious jeopardy and in turn further pressure on already stressed local NHS facilities Councils fund more than 60 per cent of residential and at home care packages in Shropshire In the case of Care at Home the recommended minimum hourly fee should be 15 74 according to the UK Home Care Association but in one case of a provider that closed it was being paid just 9 per hour by one of the local councils said Mr Coull He added We need our local MPs to put pressure on the Chancellor ahead of his Autumn Statement on November 25 We will be briefing them on this critical

  • Craig's grand design earns praise from civic society - Shropshire Business Today
    imaginative when designing new houses He said It s great to receive praise from the Civic Society as they don t give many awards indeed the society didn t actually present any awards for buildings last year because they didn t feel there was anything of significant quality We have had nothing but praise for the house and it shows that if designers are willing to consider housing in the modern context people do appreciate it We held an open house back in May when we had about 100 people through the door who all praised the contemporary look and the simple open plan layout asking why weren t more new houses designed like this That feedback coupled with the support of the Civic society shows that people want something more eye catching than the standard fare offered by the speculative house builder Mr Marston said the design was a balance between the modern and traditional which had struck a chord with people He added The house was designed to demonstrate that a simple three bed house doesn t have to be ordinary that good design isn t unaffordable and doesn t need to be extravagant With the response we have had it is a message to other developers and the planners that there is space and a market for innovation and style It was nice to be given the opportunity by the client DGP builders who developed the site to come up with an imaginative solution Chairman of the Civic Society Saffron Rainey said the award judges had been impressed with the quality of the building He said The society thought the design was innovative and of good quality sitting comfortably in its established environment It is a well considered modern designed house on a site in an existing

  • Bank of England briefing is right on the money... - Shropshire Business Today
    But the UK economy is expected to continue to grow at a reasonable rate over the next couple of years he said Asked about how the West Midlands is faring in comparison with other parts of the UK Mr Jones said It is in quite a strong position The manufacturing sector particularly automotive has seen huge investment from the likes of Jaguar Land Rover and the performance of the key city of Birmingham is strong Improvements to the infrastructure such as the Grand Central station has led to a change in perception of the city and it is proving increasingly attractive as a compelling and competitive alternative to London which is a very costly city There is still a skills mismatch however which has been here for many years It is quite frightening to see the number of people with few or no qualifications in an economy where jobs growth is largely at the higher value added skills end TBP members questioned Mr Jones on a range of issues including fears of an over reliance on personal debt and concerns that more people over 64 are starting up new businesses in comparison to under 25s Worries were also raised that some of the world s economic problems were being over exaggerated by the media and some analysts sparking the possibility of talking the UK into worse problems than it was really facing Brian Seadon acting TBP chairman said Glynn gave a comprehensive and absorbing presentation which gave people plenty of positive messages to take away for the coming year You could tell from the quality of the questions which followed his talk how engaged the audience had been It was a great turnout for our first gathering of 2016 and it was very pleasing to welcome representatives from new TBP
