Who can be an adult placement provider?
Anybody can become a placement provider. No formal qualifications or previous care experience is needed.
The service is looking for individuals who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have different skills and experiences. Adult Placement Providers need to be flexible, sensitive, tolerant, and patient and above all have a genuine interest in caring for vulnerable people.
We welcome applications from all the diverse communities and cultures of Manchester so that we can provide a wider choice to people who use the service. In terms of long term care we normally only accept carers who live in the City of Manchester.
