The Adult Social Care Workforce Survey


Tell the Government what is needed to make social care a better place to work

The Adult Social Care Workforce survey is currently live, providing care workers with the opportunity to feed their opinions directly through to the Government and, consequently, play a vital role in the development of the care workforce.

The survey covers topics such as how it feels to work in the sector, support received, working hours, training, salary, and career opportunities.

This is the first time the Government has conducted a national survey covering care workers in all roles and organisations across England who work with adults, including personal assistants, regulated professionals and registered managers.

The findings will help to inform the thinking of The Department of Health and Social Care regarding policies that will better support social care and those working in it.

At Social Care TV, we have always believed that care workers deserve a voice. Despite forming a crucial and skilled segment of our society, the care industry – and more specifically care workers – face many challenges. Now, more than ever, change is needed and care workers deserve to be heard.

The survey is being conducted by Trusted experts, Skills for Care, Ipsos and The University of Kent on behalf of the Government’s Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

The Skills for Care website states:

“We understand the issues people working in social care are facing and through this survey we want to hear more about these challenges. The survey will contribute to the Government’s understanding of how factors such as working conditions, capacity, learning and development, and working relationships affect your quality of life and wellbeing.

The findings from the survey will be used to influence decision-making to support positive change for the adult social care workforce in England.”

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be shared with colleagues and those eligible to participate.

The data and information shared in the survey will be anonymous.

The DHSC need to hear from as many people as possible who work in an adult social care related role in England, as a large number of responses will provide robust findings and results.

By engaging in the ASC Workforce Survey, care workers are empowered to have a direct say in the policies and decisions that will shape the care sector. Their feedback will provide essential insights into what’s working well and where they need more support.
