What is it?

Social Care Reward

Social Care Reward: Pay, Terms and Conditions 2020-2021 is the study which enables social care organisations to benchmark their pay and benefits packages for 29 front-line roles in 9 English Regions, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The study is supported by the National Care Forum (NCF) and Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG).

Social Care Reward 2020-2021 is open to not-for-profit social care providers in the UK and analyses Pay, Terms and Conditions information as at June 2020.

In 2019 we had the highest number of participants ever for the study. The study offered participants the ability to select their peers and benchmark their approach to pay, terms and conditions, maternity, holiday and more.

Why take part?

  • The study provides up-to-date information on the reward packages offered across the not-for-profit social care sector, by region and role.
  • Identify variations across roles, regions and organisations.
  • See how competitive your reward offer is in attracting and retaining front line workers.
  • Select organisations to compare results with from all organisations taking part in the study.
  • Inform and shape reward strategies for the coming year.

Continuing financial, recruitment and retention concerns in the sector mean that getting your overall pay and benefits offer right is vital.
