Help finding carers

I know it can be difficult finding carers to help assist your family. I just wanted to tell you of a new charity project in London, outer London, Southampton and Bournemouth which helps families find carers by interviewing ideal students studying at nearby universities. We are backed by O2's charity campaign 'Think Big' and we really are there to help, we make no profit on this scheme we just aim to help families find enthusiastic, kind and engaging carers for children.

We interview prospective students, check their references and those that we think are fabulous, we would put them in contact with you so you can meet them yourself. If you believe they are a good match for your child then fantastic, if not, don't worry, we can try again if you want us to. Anyone successful will then receive some additional training from us in how they can use the latest technology to help engage children and assist them in their educational development. While the technology is not the primary aim of the project, it is hopefully a beneficial extra!
