Key findings on the Adult Care Workforce

Skills for Care have reported on how the current size and structure of the adult social care sector and workforce could change by 2030 - here are the key findings

Skills for Care investigated key data on the size and structure of England's Adult Social Care workforce, looking at data collected from the CQC, Local Authorities, the NHS, and existing reports from other care sector bodies

 

 

The report found that:

 

  • The number of Adult Social Care jobs could grow by between 350,000 and 700,000 by the year 2030
  • Adult Social Care jobs in England grew by 1.5%, or 20,000, between 2015 and 2016
  • There are an estimated 20,300 organisations involved in providing or organising adult social care in England
  • Between 2015 and 2016, there was a significant 8% decrease in the number of Registered Nurses in adult social care

 

These findings reveal a trend of job growth in the adult social care sector, which is likely down to the increasingly aging population as it develops additional needs and fuels demand for care services. However, this projection of job growth could be marred by social, political and economical factors such as Brexit and a slowing growth of the economy, which could see social care job growth slowing while the number of people requiring care services continues to increase, outstripping the capability of the sector to provide care and support.

Care Act

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades. It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual wellbeing, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions.
