The global My Fair Home campaign is a collaboration between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF). It focuses on the employers of domestic workers – encouraging them to personally take the My Fair Home pledge to commit to upholding the rights of domestic workers in their own homes.
Here in Ireland, our My Fair Home campaign is led by migrant homecare workers who are calling for quality jobs in quality care. Members care about care standards in Ireland, and how older people and people of all ages with care needs feel and experience care. My Fair Home is also working to improve rights, terms and conditions for all homecare workers.
The campaign is in its early stages - recruiting new members, agreeing demands and actions. Right now, the majority of our members are caring for older people in the private home, with some in nursing homes, and we're getting organised for the first national consultation on regulation of homecare in Ireland this summer.
Members welcome! To get involved join our My Fair Home Face Book group. Request to become friends with 'Helen MRCI' who helps administer the group with members. Find out about our next meeting, upcoming actions and outreach around the country.
