At Barclays, we are committed to providing our clients with thought leadership on the challenges and opportunities that we are all facing within the sector. I am therefore pleased to share with you two new pieces of research, produced in partnership with Caring Times, Knight Frank and Pinsent Masons.

The “Annual UK care sector roundtables and survey 2015/2016” analyses the results of the annual survey of Caring Times members, tracking the sentiment in the residential care sector. Read the brochure to find out why staffing costs concern operators the most and what actions are being taken to improve recruitment in the sector.

Our recent “Time of change: a review of social care 2011-15” report aggregates Caring Times survey data from the past five years and identifies emerging and diminishing trends during this time. Open the report to learn more about changing financial pressures, occupancy rates and confidence levels.

We hope you find this research useful. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Neil Chandler
