Download Shared Lives Baseline data Invite EoI July 2013

- - - - -

The UK is only just grasping the potential gains from families and communities contributing to the well-being of people with support needs, and of those people being active, valued citizens. The social care White Paper and numerous other policy documents make the case for the Shared Lives sector to grow and diversify. We know that the sector is growing, rapidly in some areas, but we do not have access to accurate data on the extent of all aspects of Shared Lives delivery, including the workforce. Appendix A outlines some recent figures, but these are incomplete, appearing to cover only long term arrangements and containing contradictions, suggesting that the unusual nature of Shared Lives coupled perhaps with inconsistent local approaches to data returns have affected their accuracy. The last full workforce survey in England was in 2004.
We have a funding agreement with NESTA and the Cabinet Office based on delivering increased growth and diversification in the sector in England. In order to demonstrate growth, we need more accurate baseline figures. We are working with the Centre for Workforce Intelligence to develop a picture of the workforce at present and projections for its future.

The project is to establish robust data on the number of Shared Lives schemes and carers in England for the first time.
