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. Find out all about the NMDS-SC by downloading our new leaflet here.

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 by setting up an account on 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.   Find out from an employer how they make the most of the system in our new case study video

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.

Watch our video and hear from the Care Quality Commission, a local authority and employers about why NMDS-SC is important.
