We bring together people whose care is provided via Direct Payments or Personal Health Budgets to form small user led “Care Co-Operatives”.
We take on the burden of administering the social care and/or personal care whilst Co Op members control and direct their care as “directors” of the Co Operative.
Our Co Ops are small so that "User" members (those people receiving its services) retain a significant voice in directing their social care.
They take out only whatever they put in, so that the Co Op can handle individual care packages of different values.
And by bringing people with similar needs together, we offer peer support, kinship and even friendship.
We believe that we can offer decent rates of pay, better employment conditions and improved well-being for our "employee" members (or "caregivers" - those people who deliver our social care and personal care)
With our Co-Ops kept small our "Employee" members work as part of a 'self-managing' team able to support and provide cover for each other.
And with 'User' and 'Employee' members known by each other, cover can be seamless.
Please contact us directly with any questions, comments, or inquiries you may have.
Monday - Friday: 9am - 5pm
