Social Care Reward is a benchmarking study specifically tailored to the needs of the UK social care sector. The study involved benchmarking the social care reward policies and practice of 82 social care organisations in the UK – with 72% of those represented by NCF member organisations.

The study was undertaken by Agenda Consulting in partnership with The National Care Forum and the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group. The study enables not for profit social care organisations to benchmark their pay and benefits packages for 29 front-line roles in 9 English Regions, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
