Members of the Research On Workforce Mobility network Dr Shereen Hussein and Professor Jill Manthorpe have, together with colleagues at the Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King’s College London, undertaken a series of research projects in the field of migrant working in the United Kingdom care sector.
Social Care Workforce Periodical
The Social Care Workforce Periodical is a serial authored by Dr Hussein deriving, in the first instance, from an analysis of the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care for England, work funded by the UK Department of Health. To-date two issues have focused on migrant workers in the sector:
