how are we different?
We want to keep power in the hands of those who matter most: the people giving and receiving support.
We are owned by those we support, their families and the workers of Equal Care.
We respect our care workers: at Equal Care, the pay is better, there is space to build lasting caregiving relationships and people have choice and control over their day-to-day lives.
equal care gives you...
As a co-operative, we pay more, and we pay the same rate for giving support, for travelling between bookings and for training.
In fact, we pay you for all the work involved in your job as a professional care and support worker, and you get 30 days holiday per year and receive a pension and access to sick pay.

relationships that matter
It's a mutual decision to say yes to supporting somebody. Visits are usually longer and you get to see people regularly. There's space to get to know each other.
choice and control
You decide what your regular hours will be and this is agreed in your employment contract. You can shape your work to fit around your other life commitments and agree any changes directly with the people you support.
As a co-operative, you can become an owner of Equal Care and help decide our priorities and direction.
If you want, you can opt to acquire new expertise as part of your role. Gain experience in recruitment, support planning, peer supervision and other capabilities to help you advance to that next step in your career.
