Swiis welcomes carers from all walks of life

Swiis welcomes carers from a variety of backgrounds including:

  • Single people
  • Couples (married and unmarried)
  • Same-sex couples
  • Homeowners and non-homeowners
  • Employed or un-employed
  • Parents and non-parents
  • People over 65.

By far the most important credential is your ability to listen, understand and provide a caring, stable environment for a child or young person. You will also need:

  • A spare room in your home
  • To ensure you are not signed off as medically unable to work
  • Enthusiasm, a positive outlook and empathy
  • Respect for individuality and diversity
  • Willingness to learn from your own and other people’s experiences and to attend regular training.

I have been with Swiis for 7 years now. They are the most supportive organisation I have ever come across. They really care.
