What is it?

Social Care Reward: Pay, Terms and Conditions 2021-2022 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 conducted by Agenda Consulting and supported by the National Care Forum (NCF) and Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG).

Social Care Reward 2021-2022 is open to not-for-profit social care providers in the UK and analyses Pay, Terms and Conditions information as at June 2021.

The NCF Personnel Survey is included as a section in the same study for NCF members only. This makes it easier for you to complete both studies at the same time.


Why should you take part?

  • The Social Care Reward: Pay, Terms and Conditions 2021-2022 study provides you with up-to-date information on the reward packages offered across the not-for-profit social care sector, by region and role.
  • The study identifies variations across roles, regions and organisations.
  • Taking part enables you to see how competitive your reward offer is in attracting and retaining front line workers.
  • Participants can select organisations to compare results with from all organisations taking part in the study.
  • The study can be used to inform and shape reward strategies for the coming year.
  • Taking part provides valuable information for NCF members and the sector as whole.
  • It is part of your NCF membership benefits and costs you nothing to take part.
