The National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC)
Skills for Care’s National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) is an online data collection portal for the social care sector and is the recognised leading source of robust workforce intelligence for adult social care.
The NMDS-SC allows Skills for Care to collect detailed information online about social care service providers and their employees. Social care providers can register, maintain and access their business information through our online portal NMDS-SC Online.
The data that you enter is being used across the whole sector to inform important decisions. Find how how important your data is by viewing our new infographic.
Skills for Care has used information from the NMDS-SC to provide a comprehensive overview of the size and structure of the adult social care sector and workforce.
