Estimating demand and supply of migrant home care workers in the UK

In 2019, as part of a study on Migrant care workers in the UK,1 we launched a Delphi Survey to generate possible scenarios to guide future statistical modelling of the migrant home care workforce in the UK.

The aim of the modelling will be to explore what the future role and composition of this workforce could look like after Brexit, within the context of wider sectoral challenges. The present report summarises the responses received in Round 1 of the survey, which was collected in the first phase of the larger study.
