Facing the Facts, Shaping the Future - Adult Social Care Workforce Consultation
The consultation on the adult social care workforce (Facing the Facts, Shaping the Future) run by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and supported by Skills for Care has now ended. Thank you for taking part. The consultation sought views and evidence on actions that could be taken to address challenges relating to recruitment, retention, workforce development, regulation and workforce planning in adult social care. In total, over 550 individuals and organisations were involved in the consultation process through both online feedback and workshops.
The findings of the consultation are being used to inform the forthcoming health and care workforce strategy and Green Paper on care and support for older people and will be published alongside them. This is now expected later this year although exact timing has not been confirmed.
