Abstract

Commissioned as part of the Department of Health’s ‘Social Care Workforce

Research Initiative’, this report describes the role and significance of

temporary employment agencies in the adult social care workforce in

England; assessing what progress is being made toward achieving the policy

goal that by 2020 social care employers will no longer need to rely on

temporary agency staff to cover tasks that would be normally carried out by a

permanent social worker (DfES/DH 2006).
