Here we share with you what we know about men working in social care.
We estimate there are 1.45 million people working in adult social care, 18% of whom are male, which is equivalent to 240,000 jobs.
Our data estimates that males are more likely to work in senior management (33%) and support and outreach roles (25%). Only 10% of occupational therapists were reported to be male and only 14% of registered nurses were male, and registered nurses with 14%.
Males are more likely to work in adult day services (25%) and adult community care (24%). Domiciliary care services have the lowest proportion of male workers at 16%. This is consistent across both local authority and independent services.
