Skills for Care and the Local Government Association (LGA) have commissioned ICF to provide details of how each region contributes to the English economy. These reports have used Skills for Care workforce estimates.
Key findings include:
The total direct, indirect and induced contribution of adult social care sector activity in the West Midlands to the English economy was estimated to be between £3.8 billion to £4.1 billion.
This was estimated to be higher than the agriculture, forestry and fishing; arts, entertainment and recreation; and water supply, sewerage and waste management sectors.
