Why Care Friends?

Finding the right quality of care staff is a major challenge. Employee referral programmes are the proven best source, but they are a hassle to administer and fiendishly hard to keep top-of-mind with staff.  As a result, they only deliver a fraction of their true potential.

Care Friends is an app developed by Neil Eastwood, author of Saving Social Care, and launched in partnership with Skills for Care that changes all that.
