Investing in Britain's Social Care workforce

Today the government has laid out plans to invest £500 million into the social care workforce, developing their skills and training to deliver the best quality care.

  • We should all be incredibly proud of all the social care staff who have worked so hard, particularly during the pandemic, but as we recover from Covid we must look to the future and to reform.
  • That is why £500 million from the Health and Social Care Levy, which comes into effect this week, will be used to boost workforce recruitment, allow staff to progress in their careers in the sector and importantly, make sure staff wellbeing is better supported.
  • Genuinely transformational change cannot happen overnight, but this package will level up opportunities for current and future social care staff – helping them deliver the best quality care.
