The Care Workers Union are a registered trade union and a strategic partner of NACAS. Find out how we protect social care workers.
CWU is the only UK trade union exclusively for social care workers.
CWU works with NACAS to protect social care working professionals, speaking as care workers for care workers. Having a professional association and trade union together is important for the care working profession. We aim to be the best trade union for social care workers.
Only a trade union can guarantee representation in hearings before an employer. We’re the only care worker dedicated trade union in the UK. We do not represent any other workforce group or type, meaning all our energy is concentrated on ensuring social care workers are protected.
Opting in to CWU means you’ll receive guaranteed protection at employer hearings and representation from CWU Trade Union officials. We work alongside NACAS, which offers advice and representation at regulatory and other social care stakeholder hearings.
CWU is the only trade union to offer representation by qualified professionals who understand the complexities of the care working vocation and profession. With officers working across the UK, we provide representation at internal hearings for disciplinary and grievance procedures, and employer investigations into practice and misconduct allegations.
CWU will also offer support to self employed care professionals, who may from time to time require legal advice and representation.
Through positive relationships with government and international bodies, CWU will strive to improve the terms and conditions of social care workers.
