What are the carer's rates?

As all carers on the SuperCarers platform are self-employed individuals, they are able to set their own rates based on their level of expertise and experience. However, at present the majority of carers have rates which, when combined with SuperCarers’ commission, comes in the region of £14 per hour for longer day shifts (6+ hours), or £16 per hour for shorter visits.
 
There is more variation with live-in care based on the carer’s experience and the intensity of the care need; however typical rates are in the region of £750 per week or £800 per week in London.
 
The payment of travel expenses is largely at the discretion of the carer and customer; however typically carers cover their own travel costs for hourly and night-time visits and customers cover the costs for live-in carers to and from their home towns.
