Access to work - how to find a support worker and driver??

Hello Community, 
I live in Greenwich, London and am desperately in need of hiring a 'Driver support worker' and 'Job aide support worker'. Does anyone have any agencies that they know I can call? I have tried so so many helplines and google searches and have not got very far! 

Thank you in advance for the help and apologies in advance if my replies are slow or absent - have not used this platform before and do get quite easily overwhelmed.

Have an awesome awesome day and week ahead - you deserve the world!

    I have used access to work and for me, I have asked my carers that I have at home and post an advert on Facebook for my friends to see and share.

     I hope this helps

    Hello @HPatel

    Welcome to the community! :) I hope you are keeping well?

    It may be worth asking your local GP receptionists if they know of any agencies as they may have patients who have driver support workers. I'd also email a care home or two and ask if they recommend anyone. I did a google search like you and found links to care agencies so it may be worth an ask :)
