Who can register?

It is important that people who:

  • Treat others with dignity and respect
  • Work well with others; and
  • Can provide the best care and support possible to vulnerable people apply

Even people who are furloughed can register for the scheme.

Types of work?

Work available will depend on the needs in your local area but may include:

  • Direct care to people
  • Wellbeing support including check-ins and chats
  • Helping with cooking and cleaning
  • Administrative support

Roles could be in residential settings or in a person’s own home. They can be full-time or part-time.

What happens next?

The Department of Health and Social Care will pass your details onto your local authority and local adult social care service providers, who will contact you directly about any opportunities.

Where there are no roles available in your area you may not be contacted. It will depend on the needs and capacity in your area.

When matched to a role you will be classed as a key worker during your time working in adult social care. You will also be added to the local COVID-19 vaccine deployment programme.
