Estimated number of adult social care organisations (enterprises)

The total number of PAYE or VAT-registered whole organisations (enterprises) involved

in providing or organising adult social care in England as at 2014 was estimated at

18,000.

The definition of organisations ranges from large national employers, large charities and

councils with social services responsibilities (CSSRs) to small independent care homes.

For example, a large company running multiple care homes would count once in these

figures.

This section does not include individuals employing their own care and support staff (see

Section 4 for details about these employers).

These estimates provide an accurate reflection of the number of organisations in adult

social care. It should be noted, however, that they do not include social care operations

that are recorded in non-social care specific „Standard Industrial Classification‟ (SIC)

codes in the Office for National Statistics (ONS‟s) Inter-Departmental Business Register

data (IDBR). They also required some assumptions and estimations to remove children‟s

organisations and some non-social care organisations incorrectly coded under social care

SIC codes (see Appendix 1 for more detail about the methodology).

Table 2.1 shows a breakdown of the number of organisations by service type and

organisation size.
