New survey launched to capture the experiences of those working in adult social care
People working across adult social care are being encouraged to complete a new national Government survey which aims to capture the experiences of those working in adult social care to support improvements over time.
Skills for Care in partnership with Ipsos and The University of Kent, have launched the survey on behalf of the Government’s Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).
The survey is open to people working in any care-related role across all settings in adult social care, including personal assistants and employees in local authority adult social care departments.
The survey will contribute to the Government’s understanding of working conditions and experiences for the adult social care workforce – such as working hours, pay, capacity and training - and the forms of support which could make adult social care a better place to work.
The data collected through the survey will be vital in aiding Government decisions on how to support the adult social care sector and workforce.
This is an important opportunity for everyone working in adult social care to share their own experience of working in care and help to shape future offers of support.
