Workshop for People Employing their Own Support Staff

Equal Care Co-op is holding a morning workshop on Monday 16 July, 10:00am-1:00pm at the University Business Centre, Horton Street, Halifax.

With travel expenses paid and delicious lunch provided, held at the brand new, fully accessible office in University Business Centre, Horton St, Halifax.

The workshop will cover:

  • Choosing who supports your relative or friend
  • The challenges of managing care
  • How you are helped
  • Trust and peace of mind

You might be managing support for someone living far away or nearby to you, but not actually providing (direct) care yourself. The support might be paid for privately or by the local authority.

To find out more and register your interest, email hello@equalcare.coop or call Kate on 07734 852012 or Emma on 07983 391318.

Equal Care Co-op say;
‘Equal Care Co-op is a new, tech-friendly co-op starting up in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, with big ambitions to offer equitable and fair care starting in the Calder Valley. We firmly believe that the people who own and control care organisations should be the people who give care and use care.
We believe that care workers should be paid more – ten pounds an hour at the absolute minimum. We think that people who receive care have valuable skills and experiences which can help others. We think they should be rewarded for sharing these. If you have experience of being at the front-line of care and support (either giving or receiving) and like the sound of all this, we would love to hear from you. If you think co-operatives are wonderful, that technology is an untapped resource for social care and that people giving and getting care deserve better, please like this page and get in touch!’
