The report gives an in-depth yet accessible analysis of the social and environmental effects of unconventional fossil fuels, and includes information on where they are found, the companies trying to profit from them and the growing resistance movements against them.

The Home Care Business

As more and more people are failed by the UK’s home care system, a Corporate Watch investigation into the biggest five home care companies has found:

  • Poor quality care: almost half of their home care services inspected in the last two years have been rated as unsatisfactory by the regulator.

  • Underpaid staff: calls to 20 branches currently recruiting found the majority still do not pay their staff for all of their travel time.

  • Huge payouts to owners: four of the companies have paid out £36m to their owners over the last five years, with another £34m racked up to be paid out in the future.
