Have you worked in the care sector in England? We’d like to learn about your experience

By Andrei Savitski - 26 February 2024

The adult care sector plays a huge role in the British economy and society. And yet, over the past year, many reports found that the sector needs reform. While care homes are struggling to recruit and retain staff, many care workers themselves face exploitative working conditions. Care sector workers and care users deserve better. We are starting a new research project to figure out how the care sector can be improved for everyone.

As part of this research, we want to interview current and former care workers to improve our understanding of things like pay, hours of work, and workplace culture. We want to show policymakers that there is a better way of doing things, with clear recommendations to improve working conditions in the sector.


Who can participate?

  • All current and former care workers in England, including migrant workers on the Health and Care worker visa.
  • People who have been involved in governing the care sector, commissioning care, or managing care homes.

How will it work?

  • All interviews will be anonymised. This means all personal details such as your name or employer will be kept secret.
  • Interviews last approximately one hour and will be conducted online. 
  • To thank you for your time and input, we will give you a £20 electronic voucher after the interview. 

How do I sign up?

Please read the participant information sheet and, if you would like to sign up, fill out the consent form. Our research team will contact you to arrange the interview, and answer any questions you may have. We’d like to make sure that you understand this research and what it will involve.

If you have any further questions about taking part in our study, please do not hesitate to reach out to researcher Andrei Savitski at research@workrightscentre.org
