The Social Care Reward survey is the annual study which allows social care organisations to benchmark their pay and benefits packages for 27 front-line roles in 9 English Regions, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The survey is free of charge for NCF Members! It usually costs £600-900 for non-members and is a major member benefit.

The NCF Personnel Survey

The 2022 Personnel Survey is also included as an element of the Social Care Reward Survey this year! This makes it easier for members to contribute to two important benchmarking studies at the same time.

Why should you take part?
  • It is part of your NCF membership benefits and costs you nothing to take part.
  • The Social Care Reward: Pay, Terms and Conditions 2022 study provides you with up-to-date information on the reward packages offered across the not-for-profit social care sector, by region and role.
  • Taking part enables you to see how competitive your reward offer is in attracting and retaining front line workers.
  • Participants can select organisations to compare results with from all organisations taking part in the study.
