This chapter studies the implications for both the paid and unpaid workforce. It deconstructs the roles based on thinking about advocacy, and also proposes what paid and unpaid workers need to know and do if support is to move beyond ‘tending’. The focus of the discussion is on the idea of independence, one that is prominent in current thinking.

Keywords:   workforce, paid, unpaid, workers, advocacy, independence, current thinking, tending
