What we do

We use the information collected in the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) to create robust estimates for the size of the whole adult social care sector and characteristics of the workforce. We use these estimates to do the following:


Publish and share detailed information about the sector


Add insight and interpretation via our publications


Create interactive visualisations to make the data more engaging


Use statistical modelling and data science to discover and understand patterns and trends


Provide a consultancy service for people with detailed or bespoke data requirements



 We're the right people to talk to because:

  • the data we collect in ASC-WDS gives an unrivalled overview of the social care workforce in England
  • we have over 15 years of experience in analysing and interpreting social care data - it's what we do
  • our analysts have worked with leading universities and statisticians to create our workforce models.

Ƶ is committed to improving the sector and outcomes for people that use services. Our team combine that commitment with many years of experience in understanding the sector. 

Our data and subsequent reports are used by the Government, local authorities, care providing organisations, strategic bodies, universities, think tanks and many others.

In addition to our Department of Health and Social Care funded work, you can commission us to deliver bespoke analysis. Take a look at the work we have done with other organsiations and the impact this work has achieved.
