About Us

About Freelance Support Workers


Freelance Support Workers is an online platform that connects Employing Care Providers with Support Workers who are able to cover shifts or sign up to short-term contracts for staff coverage purposes.

Our database of support worker’s profiles enables hiring care providers to create an online team of Bank Support Workers and to save money in recruitment.

Employers are not required to sign any contracts with us and all employment agreements are made directly between the employer and the freelancer.

Most of the support workers on this site are on the DBS update service, so employers that require immediate staffing can check the DBS status of the Freelancer instantly.


Through our marketplace, employers can hire freelancer support workers to do work in areas such as Learning Disability support Work, Mental Health Support Work, Residential Support Work, Elderly Care Jobs and Care Assistant Jobs. Employers can post their shifts and block book freelancers for months at a time.

Support Workers operating through Freelance Support Workers get a minimum of £11 an hour as our freelancers are only providing temporary staff cover until employers find permanent staffing.

We do not charge any fees in the event an employer and a Freelancer agree on a  permanent job contract.
