We're launching our latest Have Your Say survey in January 2024.
We recently announced the results of our 2023 pilot survey of the registered workforce, which showed that social care workers feel valued by the people and families they support, but also undervalued by the public and underpaid for the work they do.
The survey asked questions about things like health and well-being, pay and conditions, and what people like about working in the sector.
It was the first survey of its kind and, combined with our workforce data collections, gave us an insight into working in social care we haven’t had before.
We’re now preparing to hold the survey again so that we can start to monitor trends over time.
We also want to find out more about some of the themes that emerged from this year’s survey to give us a more detailed picture of what’s happening in the sector. One of the ways we’ll do this is by holding interviews and focus groups with workers and employers.
