Our Mission

We want to make it easier for carers to find local clients and be paid a fair rate for their services, as quickly as possible.

Why we care

We want to revolutionise the way social care works, bringing carers and clients together whilst providing more choice for both. We don’t believe that the valuable work you do as a carer should be subject to excessive agency commission payments. We want to give you the opportunity deliver quality care and get paid a fair rate for your skills.

How we care

Once you have set up a profile, we make it easy for you to find the right clients in your area. You decide who you want to work with, how far you want to travel and most importantly how much you want to get paid for your skills. All the payment and contracting is handled online and the payment will usually be in your stripe account within 48 hours of a visit.

Who we care for

PrimeCarers are not an agency – we help you to build up a portfolio of clients and give you the tools you need to work entirely for yourself. We’re here to support you all the way with insurance* contracting and online tools that include care plans and reporting. Our website allows potential clients to contact you, discuss their needs and then book and pay for care online.

About us

We want to make it easier and safer to choose, book and pay for professional care online.
We understand how complex and time consuming it can be organising care. We know how frustrating it is for relatives and those in need of care when their expectations are not met. We know that it’s difficult to build a relationship with a carer when you get a different one every day. We know this because we’ve lived it. So we knew there had to be a better way.
We have seen, first-hand, how difficult it was organising Independent care for our relatives.

How it works

Apply

Apply right here on our website. Just click here to get started. Alternatively, you can leave your email so that we can contact you at a later date. We will interview you over the phone, to ensure that we are happy to connect you with our clients. We also check your qualifications and run a DBS check. Once you’ve been accepted, we’ll give you access to the carer dashboard so you can set up a profile.

Build client base

Send a message to the carers you’ve selected to discuss your needs and their availability. If you’re not signed up as a client, you’ll be asked to register before sending your first message. Due to demand we suggest that you contact up to 6 carers to ensure we can help. Take some time to explain your specific needs to the carers you’ve contacted so they know what your requirements are.

Book ongoing visits

The client will book your future visits through the website to make sure that you and the visit are insured. You accept the visits via your carer dashboard so that the client knows you are attending. Once you have completed the visit, return to your carer dashboard and write a brief report about the visit and mark it as complete. The client will be charged and the money (minus our commission) will be transferred to your stripe account – usually within 48 hours. Leave apply and verify copy as it is – although I think you have a stray apostrophe in IDs – you don’t need the apostrophe to make it plural.

Apply and verify through our secure digital partner
