April 2023 Fellow's update: Amanda Walters
Amanda Walters (CF 2018) has achieved extensive media coverage for her Activate funded campaign on better sick pay for migrant workers. One of these workers featured anonymously in The Metro paper describing the issues they encounter in not receiving adequate sick pay. Priti Patel and Robert Buckland wrote a joint op-ed supporting the campaign in The Times, which then rolled out into other outlets including the Daily Express, Daily Mail, The Independent and Sky News, getting widespread coverage. Amanda and colleagues also worked with Chartered Institute for Payroll and Pension (CIPP) professionals to release a poll showing their employers support reforms to sick pay. Read the story here.
