How it works

'Recommend Us' is available to all
our carers - here's how it works.
  • Step One

    Refer someone

    First, have a chat with the person you're thinking of, to make sure they're happy for you to pass their details to us. Then you can provide these via the form above, NFA World, your carer engagement officer or supervising social worker.

  • Step Two

    We'll get in touch

    Our recruitment team will contact them for an initial conversation and answer any immediate questions they have. If they proceed and go on to become an approved carer, you'll receive £1,500*.
