Care homes are set to benefit from a new initiative to help with staffing problems

A new £162.5 million workforce retention and recruitment fund will be available to local authorities across England based on their need, to boost the number of people working in adult social care and supporting those already working in the sector to continue to deliver care.

The ring-fenced monies will be available until the end of March 2022 and will be used by local authorities working with providers to recruit staff. It will also be available to help retain the existing workforce through overtime payments and staff banks of people ready to work in social care.
