PickaShift set to digitally disrupt the NI Social Care Sector
A recent economic study by the Northern Ireland Social Care Council showed that the overall contribution to the economy of the adult social care sector was over £800m – supporting employment for over 100,000 people here. Set against the context of such a small population these are significant numbers.
It also shows that the reliance on the social care sector is high and that it is a lifeline for many. Not only do nursing and residential care homes provide much-needed care for individuals, it also assists the family members and friends of those who need support.
