Local Skills, Universal Impact

The Health and Social Care sector is Lancashire’s largest employment sector, employing 16% of Lancashire’s workforce. Like the rest of the UK, Lancashire has an ageing population (with the number of people over 65 set to rise by 23% in a decade) and more people with complex care needs living longer. This means that demand for health and care services is set to continue rising – creating a range of employment opportunities.
