To ask Her Majesty's Government how many CARE badges have been distributed to social care workers following the announcement by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care on 15 April that these would give recipients the same "recognitions and benefits" as NHS staff.

Since the Secretary of State’s announcement around 15,000 badges have been distributed at no cost to social care providers or members of the workforce.

Additional badges of recognition have been procured and we expect to be able to start distribution of these badges shortly. Details of how they will be distributed to people working in social care who want to wear this badge will be available in due course.
