Why Independent Carers? – We are passionate about raising the profile of the job of care and more importantly passionate about providing better care for those that need it. We would really like to see….
- The job of care to be done by professional carers who are appropriately rewarded for their valuable work
- Carers earning more than the minimum wage
- Care work as more appealing to those who are very capable and professional but can’t afford to do it on the minimum wage
- Those clients who want it, put in control of care and able to buy in a service that they can manage
- The provision of tools to become a self-employed carer
- The provision of information for both parties to make it work
- Signposts and opportunities e.g. training, insurance, other providers.
