Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS)

Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS)

The Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) is an online data collection service and the leading source of workforce information for the adult social care sector in England.  It influences decisions made by Government, Department of Health and Social Care, CQC and Local Authorities, on issues such as workforce funding and policy change.

Why create an account?

Over 20,000 care providing locations already hold an Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) account which provides them with the opportunity to claim from the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) as well as plan their workforce needs, manage their staff training records, access a range of benefits, and also enable their data to inform important decisions which affect their businesses and the quality of care today and in the future.

How to create an account

If you haven’t already created account visit Adult Social Care (ASC) Workforce Data Set on our website or email your Locality Manager Sara Harris at Sara.harris@skillsforcare.org.uk for more details.
