Thank you for your interest in the Care Futures programme.

This first phase of the programme is focused on understanding the pandemic experience given the significant changes and impacts across many different areas of practice both in care homes and care at home.

If you have experience of working or connecting with care homes or care at home services we invite you to take part in this survey series to share your experience.

This week the survey is focused on the theme of ‘Workforce’. In this theme we are interested to explore the impacts of COVID-19 on many different aspects of work in social care. 

The survey has 4 sections: workforce impacts; staffing levels, recruitment & induction; skills, training & confidence; and future workforce.
If you would like to see the questions in advance to help you complete the survey fully, you can download a PDF of the survey here - download survey questions.

You can also download Word copies of the survey to complete by hand or to distribute to others - download Word survey questions.

Please send any completed survey responses to carefutures@scottishcare.org

Each week we will share a survey based on the weekly theme topic we are exploring. Each survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete and there will be 6 surveys in total over the 6 weeks. You can choose to take part in as many or as little as you wish.

You can access previous surveys at: https://scottishcare.org/project/collective-care-future/

If you don’t feel that you have had direct working experience with the independent care sector during the pandemic but you would like to be involved in the second phase of the programme, please let us know and we will be in contact in due course.
