General Conditions of Service
What can Caritas Care offer you? Friendship, hospitality and respect in short. In exit interview employees regularly report on the positive work experience Caritas Care has given them... and unlike many voluntary organisations pay and conditions are good because we want to attract and retain the best staff.
Caritas Care has been established as a social care agency since 1934 and operates in the area of Lancashire, north of the Ribble, in the County of Cumbria. The charity delivers its services on the basis of need. We work across the whole community and value all people.
Our work is structured into two operational areas. The Children's Services provides high quality adoption, fostering, day and residential care to children unable to live in their own families. The Community Services deliver support to people with a disability, to ex-offenders, the elderly and within communities where the need is evident.
We can offer you job satisfaction - a real sense of 'doing something positive' for the lives of others... and every job counts - each person is part of the charity's endeavour to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people in need, adults with disabilities, elderly people isolated through hearing loss, ex-offenders and disadvantaged or marginalized communities.
