  • We’ve recently published a report on the Social Worker Workforce Planning data 2015-16. The report aims to support local authorities and the Care Council for Wales (now Social Care Wales) in planning for future workforce needs and to inform the commissioning of social worker training in Wales.

    The report shows the numbers of social workers working in local authorities in Adults’ Services, Children's Services and other areas. It also looks at the trends of the workforce over time, staff turnover and the projected workforce over the next three years.

    Struggling to collect robust, consistent data? Find out how we helped local authority social care training managers…

    Each year local authority social care training managers collect information about the external commissioned social care provider workforce. Until recently there has been little consistency in the data that has been collected or the way in which it is collected. As such, it has been difficult to use the data to draw any robust conclusions about the size and composition of the workforce at a regional or national level. The need for such a dataset that is both useful at local authority area level and can be collated at a regional and national level is becoming increasingly important.

    In 2013, the Care Council for Wales (CCW) commissioned us to support local authorities in a pilot collection of information about the workforce of external social care providers that are commissioned to provide services by Welsh local authorities. Part of the support was to provide analysis of the data at a local, regional and national level. We have since been commissioned to repeat the exercise for both 2014 and 2015, building on lessons learned.

    The CCW have recently published the report detailing the findings from the 2015 data collection.

    If you would like further information on the type of support we can offer please contact enquiries@dataunitwales.gov.uk.
