This issue of the Social Care Workforce Periodical continues the analysis of the contribution of migrant care workers in the English social care sector, particularly in the long term care sector.

In this issue we focus on three main elements: first, observed trends in the use of migrants from different nationalities in the care sector; second, it examines pay differentials between migrants and British workers; and lastly, using a regression model, it investigates the specific characteristics of migrants in the care sector and whether they are more likely to be working in organisations with specific characteristics or type.
