Sector Pulse Check
Our annual Sector Pulse Check provides a yearly snapshot of the financial health of the social care sector.
Since 2016, we’ve been commissioning independent economics and business consultancy Cebr to produce our Sector Pulse Checks which analyse the effects of changes to the social care sector, with a particular focus on its financial health.
Our Sector Pulse Checks are based on analysis of surveys completed by social care providers from across the sector. We’re grateful to Learning Disability Voices, LDEngland, Care England and the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG) for their support in sharing our survey with their members and helping to ensure the sample questioned was as representative of the sector as possible.
Sector Pulse Check 2019
We’re pleased to report that our 2019 survey was completed by 77 social care organisations, representing an even broader pool of respondents than any previous year, including learning disability care, elderly care, and physical disability care.
It’s our hope that policymakers and stakeholders use the insight provided by this annual snapshot to influence positive and long-lasting change.
