Adult Social Care Review

PA Pool Wheelchair DisabilityThe Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has been commissioned by the government to undertake a review of adult social care and the impact the ending of ‘freedom of movement’ has had because of Brexit.

As a result, the MAC would like to hear from anyone who has relevant knowledge, experience or expertise to help inform its response. To ease this process, they have developed three different questionnaires aimed at employers, organisations and individuals. You can preview the questionnaires online and direct any queries to mac@homeoffice.gov.uk.

Specifically, they have been asked to investigate the following:

  • the adult social care workforce (such as skills shortages) covering the range of caring roles in adult social care including care workers, registered nurses and managerial roles
  • visa options for social care workers
  • long-term consequences for workforce recruitment, training and employee terms and conditions
  • any other relevant matters the independent chair deems appropriate which are relevant to the above objectives.

The consultation closes on 29 October 2021 and the report is due April 2022.
