Skills for Care is the leading source of workforce intelligence for adult social care in England.
We’re commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care to collect data on adult social care providers and their workforce in the National Minimum Dataset for Social Care (NMDS-SC). For over ten years we have turned this data into intelligence and insight that's relied upon by the Government and our sector.
Understanding the size and shape of the sector and the issues affecting it helps us provide evidence to policy and decision makers. Using our workforce intelligence we're able to do this at both a national and local level.
