Skills for Care is the leading source of workforce intelligence for adult social care in England.
We’re commissioned by the Department of Health to collect data on adult social care providers and their workforce via 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 across by the Government and our sector.
Knowing how big the sector is, and what it looks like, helps reinforce its importance and position as a major part of the economy so it's crucial that we have clear, strong and healthy information about our workforce.
