This report looks at changes in the workforce since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and before where relevant, using Skills for Care’s workforce estimates sector between 2012/13 and 2022/23.
It also shows more recent changes between March 2023 and June 2023 using Adult Social Care Workforce Dataset (ASC-WDS) data completed by independent sector employers during that period. This information has not been weighted to represent the whole sector but should be indicative of recent changes and developments. Skills for Care is continuing to track these metrics every month. This information can be found on the workforce intelligence website.
Skills for Care has also included qualitative information and evidence gathered from care providers to add context to the statistics.
