We have chosen to write about our experiences of peer research among paid, migrant, live in carers in London. The role of a live-in carer is a unique employment arrangement where there are very few legal guidelines and a lack of clear boundaries and expectations. Live-in carers work in their client’s home twenty-four hours a day, with a couple of hours break at midday. Night calls are an expected part of the job. These features blur the boundaries of work and rest. Our project investigated the vulnerability of such workers to severe forms of labour exploitation related to deviations from standard working conditions such as working hours, leave entitlements, health and safety standards and decent treatment.
