Adult social care workforce
1.6 million people work for adult social care providers in England. That’s more than the NHS at 1.4 million.
They support some of our most vulnerable citizens to live as independently as possible, in their own homes or in residential and supported living settings.
CPA works with care providers as employers, and with national and local policymakers on key issues affecting the workforce.
