The apps taking on social care's 'broken' business model
Leila Karim* started doing care work two years ago, earning £8 an hour. It was, she says, a “chaotic” experience. There was a different manager every two to three weeks, the systems were all paper-based and “it was difficult getting to clients on time because we weren’t told when our next shift was”, says the 19-year-old student. “Sometimes you’d get a call at 6am to cover a call in the next hour or two.”
