Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Our workforce data, information and intelligence publications are all available from this section of the web-site.
These tables look in detail at the children's services workforce in Scotland.
These tables look in detail at the adults' services workforce in Scotland. They supplement data already published in the Scottish Social Service Sector: Report on 2019 Workforce Data.
Adults' services account for just over 70 percent of the Scottish social service workforce and are made up of the following sub-sectors:
- adult day care
- adult placement services
- care homes for adults
- fieldwork service (adults)
- fieldwork service (generic)
- fieldwork service (offenders)
- housing support/care at home
- nurse agencies
- offender accommodation services
The Care Inspectorate and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) have published new figures on the levels of staff vacancies in Scotland’s care services.
It is important to remember the data in the report comes from December 2019 and so reflects the situation in care services before the COVID-19 pandemic began in the UK and before the first case had been identified in the UK.
Our next report, which we will publish in 2021, will be based on data from 31 December 2020.
As with the previous report, this report provides a national overview of vacancies and recruitment difficulties reported by care services to the Care Inspectorate, the body which registers and inspects all care services. It also includes data on vacancies as a percentage of the total whole time equivalent (WTE) workforce.
