At New Dawn Care Agency we have recently become aware of Shropshire RRC Wheels to Work services. Talking with them, we are hopeful that their e-bike and scooter services can help us attract people who want to work in social care but do not have their own transport.
Further, as social care offers job security, and with our pay rates, our staff find they can obtain finance to enable them to get their own car. We are very much hoping that Wheels to Work will be the first step on a career ladder for people not yet working in social care. To help dispel some of the myths about working in social care, we also offer ‘Try before you apply’ taster shifts.
