Scottish Care survey reveals care homes’ reliance on international staff

Over two-thirds of Scottish Care members are currently recruiting staff from overseas. In some areas, over nine in ten staff working at the home are international recruits.

The survey was compiled after members reported concerns with Home Office requests for additional documentation around contract agreements and frameworks.  

It reveals that almost seven in every 10 respondents (68 per cent) feel some reluctance to consider international recruitment in the future, due to concerns over sustainability and financially viability.   

The National Care Forum (NCF) in collaboration with the Global Ageing NetworkScottish Care and UKRI has published a report resulting from last year’s Global Ageing Conference.
