Today Skills for Care has published The Size and Structure of the Adult Social Care Sector and Workforce in England . This publication provides data for 2022-23 on workforce supply and demand – including filled posts, vacancies and international recruitment.
It’s my pleasure to share with you the attached copy of the data summary and our press release. You can also view our visualisation of the data on our website.
The main findings include:
- The workforce started to grow again by 1% after shrinking the previous year
- The estimated number of vacancies on any given day fell to 152,000 – a vacancy rate of 9.9%
- Around 70,000 people were recruited from abroad into direct care-providing roles
In October we’ll also be publishing our annual flagship State of the Adult Social Care Sector and Workforce in England report, which will provide detailed data and analysis on a wider range of themes and at a local level. You’ll shortly be getting an invitation for the launch event, and I hope you’ll be able to join us in October.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I or the data experts in our Workforce Intelligence team would be very happy to help.
