The Workforce videos are aimed at helping people understand the benefits of joining Surrey Care Association and help you understand more about the work Surrey Care does in the care and support field, encouraging people to consider a career in care.

The SCA Workforce Project

Surrey Care Providers report that they are experiencing great difficulty recruiting and retaining care and support staff. This is supported by national statistics, which show high vacancies and retention rates, this situation appears to be getting worse.

Surrey has a very low unemployment rate and the care and support sector wages are considered low for the area, this, as well as the limit in public sector finances and the potential limitation on immigration, result in a great challenge for the providers of services in Surrey.

The project provides a unique opportunity for the provider community, working through the Surrey Care Association, to join the Surrey County Council and Surrey CCG’s to take positive steps to build a high quality care and support workforce to meet the current and futures needs of the people of Surrey.
