Care Friends is a rapidly growing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business that is addressing the recruitment and retention challenges in adult social care with a novel employee referral app that encourages care workers to refer their friends to join them.
Check out the whole-page feature from The Guardian in 2019 covering our successful pilots here. The app has caught the imagination of the adult social care sector since its launch in June 2020. So far, almost 30,000 care workers have signed up via their employers across the UK, Ireland, and Australia.
We are a small, friendly, work-from-home company with a strong social purpose and global ambitions. 7% of our workforce were previously vets!
Organisation aims & mission
Our company was created to help the vulnerable in society by activating the care workforce as recruiters, who are best-placed to identify and recruit people from their network with the right values for care or support work.
The whole team is focused on our mission to get the app in widespread use across social care markets around the world and help solve the recruitment and retention crisis in social care.
