No specific estimate has been made as data on the number of live-in-carers for disabled people is not held centrally. Skills for Care data shows that approximately 7.5% of the overall workforce employed by independent providers or local authorities held a non-British European Union nationality in 2019/20 and this has remained at approximately 7.5% in 2020/21.
