Message to staff on Brexit and the triggering of Article 50


As the Prime Minister formally begins the UK’s departure from the European Union with the triggering of Article 50, we felt it was important to acknowledge how this may make some of our colleagues feel and to try to provide reassurance to those who may feel worried about what it might mean and anxious about the future.

During this time of uncertainty it is difficult to predict what changes will follow our exit from the European Union.  So let’s concentrate on what we do know.  We know that there are approximately around 1.5 million jobs in the adult care sector.  We know that people come from all over Europe and the world to work in this sector.  We know that without people coming from all over the globe to work in the care sector, we simply would not be able to provide the care and services hundreds of thousands of people rely on every day.

And for what we hope you all know.  We hope you know that it doesn’t matter what country you call home.  We hope you know that Freeways is grateful to you every day for the care you give and the services you provide.  We hope you know how valued you are when you come to work.  We hope you know how thankful we are that you are there to care. 

We hope you know that you are more than welcome at Freeways - you are vital to us.  We hope that whatever Brexit will mean, we continue to celebrate what brings us together and what makes Freeways great. That is, and will always be, each of you.
