Home care business targets ‘Apprentice Carers’ following office expansion


A Shropshire-based home care company has relocated to a bigger office as it ramps up its recruitment drive.

Affinity Homecare Shewsbury was based in Bicton Heath, but has expanded to the point where it had outgrown its office space.

It has now moved into Global House, Shrewsbury Business Park and is currently working with Telford college to recruit 10 ‘Apprentice Carers’.

Registered manager Melissa Morgan told Shropshire Live: “We are incredibly excited to be able to offer these apprenticeships as whilst all Apprentice Carers will be paid the same as our Care Assistants, they will be given the opportunity for further training as part of their role.

“We hope that this will help to provide a robust care worker service to meet the growing needs of the elderly and disabled community in Shropshire in the coming years.”

The business welcomed the Mayor of Shrewsbury to open the new office last week. He was joined by the office team, care staff and some of Affinity’s clients.
