Care has traditionally struggled with retention – in 2018/2019, Skills for Care estimated that approximately 440,000 directly employed social care staff in England left their jobs, with a turnover rate of 32.2 per cent – but workforce issues have been exacerbated by staff illness or the need to self-isolate.
