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.
