Our Workforce Intelligence team work with the data collected in ASC-WDS to share intelligence and insight into the sector. They produce data and publications that help identify what the adult social care workforce in England looks like today and what it might look like in the future.

They also work closely with DHSC and have provided data to help them understand:

  • the implications of Brexit on the social care workforce
  • the impact of changes to the National Living Wage
  • the number of flu and COVID-19 vaccines needed in the sector.
