The SC-WRES was developed by Skills for Care as a tool to identify issues and measure improvements in the workforce with respect to the experiences of people from a Black, Asian and minority ethnic background.

SC-WRES comprises of nine measurable metrics/benchmarks to examine disparities in race equalities. It’s a process that organisations can use to address evidence and make progress towards race equality.


How you can get involved

SC-WRES has been piloted by 18 trailblazing local authorities and we’re now inviting more local authorities to become involved during the next data collection running from 1 September 2023 to mid-October 2023.

Join us for a virtual information session on Thursday 20 July at 14:00 where we’ll give an overview on:

  • what SC-WRES is
  • why it’s important
  • the data collection process
  • next steps and questions.
