I think you'll be in luck! There usually crying out for home care workers. Just google care work (area you live). Most jobs will expect you to drive - but some take walkers. The money's pretty average and usually your expected to work times between 6am-10pm any day of the week - bit many do work part time. You will need to be able to pass a CRB/DBS check though

Good luck smile

YY to cinders post. Most reputable companies will ask you to undergo induction training, in the main this is funded by them and you will get paid for attending.

Most companies want someone reliable, flexible and caring.

Go on to the CQC website and look for agencies or care providers.

Some agencies require experience but you may did one that doesn't.

If you don't like the idea of domiciliary (driving to lots of different houses in a day) they may have options where you can work with one client (patient) for a set number of hours for a week.
