We need your views..


Do you work in adult social care in England?  Are you a care worker or senior care worker, social worker, occupational therapist, or nurse working in a care home, working with adults or older people?

We would like you to take part in a major online survey funded by the Department of Health and conducted by the Social Care Workforce Research Unit. You will have the chance to win one of hundreds of pounds worth of prizes – each of £10 in high street vouchers.

We want to find out more about the good and not so good aspects of working in social care and why people join or leave this area of work. This survey is part of a larger study and it should take you about 20 minutes to answer all the questions. It is confidential and no one, including your employer, will be told you have completed the survey or what you have said.

To take part in the survey, please click on the following link:

If you have any difficulties completing the online questionnaire or would prefer to complete a paper version please ring 020 7848 1782 and we will send you a questionnaire with stamped addressed envelope. This research has received ethical approval from King’s College London.

If you have any queries or would like to know more about the research please contact me directly –

Thanks for your participation!
