Feel excited about your work AND help your community

Offer help at home to people near you

  • Earn money to help your community – people who offer care in Shropshire often charge £10 - £15 per hour, depending on the service.
  • Work flexible hours that suit you and your commitments.
  • Be you own boss and provide quality care you can be proud of.

We’re running a development scheme to help people like you set up your very own small business offering help at home to our older neighbours here in lovely North Shropshire. You might offer personal care, dog walking, help with shopping or cooking or something else.

I am the Shropshire Catalyst Christine, and I can support you to get started. I’ll help you understand the regulation, market your service, and be a listening ear. At Community Catalysts we’ve spent ten years helping hundreds of people like you to set up small enterprises, so we have tried and tested methods to get you up and running. This is your chance to make a change and start that journey to job satisfaction. Just call, text, message or email to find our more. Our help is free because this project is funded by Shropshire Council, for this year only.

“When I first met my last customer, he was quite poorly, but his biggest issue was that he was so lonely. But after three months of visitng him regularly, talking with him and spending time with him, he became a di!erent person. He began to talk more, he began to smile.”
