Social Care

Could you offer support to children and young people in your spare time?

We are looking to expand our team of Short Break Carers and would be keen to speak with individuals who would like to explore the opportunity of providing part time care and support for children and young people with additional needs.

This can be alongside your current work if required. Previous experience would be an advantage, but not necessary as full training will be given.

How Much Will I Earn?

Our Short Break Carers are paid for their time and this is a paid opportunity. Payment varies from case to case. We can provide you with an insight on payments and reimbursement in our information packs we provide on enquiry.

We want to speak with you if you;

* Want to improve outcomes for children and young people in care

* Have a genuine desire to care for others

* Have a spare room in your property

* Have time to give or work part time

* Are a compassionate, caring and reliable person

What will I do?

You will be responsible for providing a safe and nurturing environment to those who are in your care. Our short break carers provide person-centred therapeutic care in line with the individual’s needs and requirements. This includes the likes of personal care and daily living tasks. Making a positive impact to someone’s life is priority, and this could be your opportunity to do just that!

What previous experience do I need?

Our short break carers can come from all walks of life and full training is given. We find that having some experience of providing care and support previously is an advantage. Experience of working with, or caring for, an individual with Autism, physical or learning disabilities would provide great insight and be a distinct advantage.

If you have a NVQ2 / SVQ2 in Health and Social Care or currently work in a care related job you could be fast tracked through our recruitment process.

Must Haves to be a Short Break Carer

* Desire to help and care for people

* Work part time or have spare time to provide short term breaks/care
