Living Wage Survey – we need your input


Posted on October 27th, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on Living Wage Survey – we need your input

Alongside the need for sustained lobbying by providers and trade bodies, sector analyst LaingBuisson has partnered with Caring Times to conduct a survey of care providers to gauge the impact of the National Living Wage.

To do this we need as high a volume of data as possible. To ensure that your home’s data is part of this survey we ask you to visit www.laingbuisson.co.uk and follow the links to answer a short series of questions covering staff, salaries and resident numbers.

The results of this survey will be analysed by LaingBuisson’s team of long term care consultants who will produce a definitive review of existing carer pay rates from which scenarios can be drawn which reflect the true impact of the NLW in a way which the government will be forced to address. Aggregate only data only will be reported. No care home’s individual information will be revealed to any third party. LaingBuisson has been conducting care home surveys for more than a decade and can assure you that all survey responses will be held in the strictest confidence.

With just six months to go before these changes begin to bite it’s hard to overstate the importance of the sector collecting and presenting the hard evidence required to support any arguments for additional funding and so LaingBuisson and Caring Times urge you to log on and fill out this survey.
