On 1 April 2016 the Government introduced a new mandatory National Living Wage (NLW) of £7.20 per hour for all workers aged 25 or over (£7.50 as at 1 April 2017). This is forecast to increase to around £9 by 2020. Prior to the introduction of the NLW, the statutory National Minimum Wage for workers aged 21 or over was £6.70, set in October 2015.

This report estimates the financial impact of the national living wage (NLW) in adult social care at local authority level during the next financial period or year on year until 2020.

This includes the direct impact of workers requiring a pay increase to meet the legal minimum and also the impact of maintaining differentials for workers already paid above the limit.

This Excel report provides demand based projections for the size of the adult social care workforce in England, at your selected region and local authority area up to 2030. A written report can also be produced to accompany the data tables.

As standard three projections are included, based on ‘current rate of growth observed between 2012 and 2016’, based on ‘population growth of those aged 65 and above’ and ‘population growth of those aged 75 and above’. These forecasts account for demographic and population change over the period. A rationale for the projections is also included.

The projections do not account for any political, economic, technological or social factors that could have an impact on the future size of the workforce.

Skills for Care can work with you to develop your own scenarios specific to adult social care in your area.

This report provides estimates generated by Skills for Care showing the economic contribution of the adult social care sector in England, your selected region and local authority area. Estimates are calculated using full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs in the adult social care sector in conjunction with FTE salary. The National Minimum Dataset for Social Care (NMDS-SC) underpins both component sources of information. Also included are private sector profits and indirect and induced effects that we calculate using various sources.
