Wheels to Work
Transport is one of the main barriers candidates face when starting a career in adult social care. Wheels to Work Silverstone is a local scheme that enables people who do not have access to a car or reliable public transport to rent a scooter affordably (or sometimes for free) to help them travel to work.
Candidates who are customers at the Job Centre Plus may be able to get funding as part of the scheme. Encourage candidates to speak to their work coach.
Access to childcare is a common barrier for candidates looking to start a role in adult social care. It can also be a challenge for current staff who become parents/ carers.
Having useful resources and information to signpost candidates/ staff members to can help you to retain staff and increase your workforce's flexibility.
Here are some useful links;
Signpost candidates to local Facebook pages, such as 'Childminders and babysitters in Hinckley', to find local childcare providers.
