Regional information

These web pages share adult social care workforce figures by region.

The data is analysed and presented in a series of regional reports produced by Skills for Care using the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) using data as at 2017/18 and from other sources. 

For the latest national workforce data at England level, see 'State of the adult social care sector and workforce in England, 2019' report.
