Penrose Care head promotes Living Wage in social care at the House of Lords

Belsize Village, London – On March 10, 2015, Penrose Care managing director, Robert Stephenson-Padron, remarked at a Citizens UK / Living Wage Foundation event at the House of Lords on “Promoting the Living Wage in Challenging Sectors.” The event was hosted by Baroness Jan Royall.

“My work at Penrose Care has proven to me that paying the living wage is a credible message to our employees that we care about them as human beings, and I would encourage all employers who can, to pay the Living Wage,” said Mr. Stephenson-Padron, whose full remarks can be found here.

Penrose Care, as the UK’s pioneer of ethics in home care, is persistently committed to promoting ethics in social care which the company has demonstrated leads to high quality care.
