Skills for Care estimates that around 390,000 people leave their jobs every year – that’s over 1,000 every day - and approximately 110,000 vacancies at any one time. This means we need to increase the size and skills of the adult social care workforce and stem the flow of wasted resources on recruiting people who aren't going to stay in the sector. Recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce, who have the right values, can help care services to deliver high quality and consistent care and support.
