New Salvere 2011
The Adventure Begins - Salvere Social Enterprise CIC
Salvere is a not for profit Community Interest Company. We begin life as a spin out of service from Blackburn with Darwen Council to provide care and support solutions and we are part of the Government’s mutuals pathfinder programme. The mission as a new organisation is to discover new ways to accelerate personalised care and support services. In particular to see how we might enhance opportunities for personal carers to work as personal assistants for people using direct payments.
Stockport Council has joined with us to run an exciting programme to create a new crop of personal assistants to provide innovative support to people.
Being a personal assistant can be such a rewarding role, providing both care and support in a wide range of situations. People young and old are beginning to see the benefits of taking a direct payment from the local authority and directing their own support. Working for an individual employer can open up new horizons and makes for every day being different.
As more care workers start to see the advantages of better pay and conditions working for an individual and their family, we hope at Salvere to become the engine of support that helps individual employers manage well and achieve their goals in life.
