2. About the website/platform “CarerConnect.co.uk” and the brand name “CarerConnect”
2.1 CarerConnect is an online platform for care seekers and care givers to connect with one another and to communicate and arrange their service agreements between one another:
This is facilitated through providing services, which include;
A searchable online database of care givers (not vetted or verified).
A jobs board where care seekers can post details of a job opportunity they are looking to fill.
Communication tools to facilitate interaction between care seekers and care givers and between care givers and fellow care givers.
2.2 Platform provision
CarerConnect is an online networking or introductory platform. It provides an online marketplace to facilitate the process of finding and hiring care givers and to provide a secure means for handling payments. It also markets and introduces care givers to care seekers. CarerConnect does not directly supply carers to care seekers. For the avoidance of all doubt, CarerConnect does not employ care givers (through Carer Connect Limited), nor does CarerConnect act as an employment agency or care agency. For the avoidance of doubt this is always the responsibility of the care seekers to vet the care givers. We operate what we call a “self-managed model of freelancing” kind of services that help care seekers and care givers to connect only.
2.3 Managed services
For further avoidance of doubt, CarerConnect does not provide or arrange for care services, assistance services, or any services or participate in the interaction between care givers and care seekers, except to make introductions and provide technology to facilitate the interaction.
A care giver on the CarerConnect platform solely decides whether to accept an offer from a care seeker to provide any services or not. The care seeker solely decides whether to engage a care giver/carer/service provider to provide any services. The service agreement created by the care giver/carer/service provider at the start of an assignment and accepted by the care seeker would be a legal contract between each of these parties and they have to handle it by their own.
2.4 Platform constraints & waivers
The CarerConnect platform is used at the care seeker’s and care giver’s own risk and there is no guarantee that the platform will work optimally, not be subject to downtime, or removed from service at any point in time. CarerConnect does not accept any liability for losses or damages caused by the unavailability of the service, technical errors, usage errors or use of the platform outside of the intended purpose. CarerConnect disclaims any liability for controversies, losses, injury, accidents, claims or damages arising out of the use if the online tools it provides, the engagement of care givers/carers/service providers or the provision of any services by care givers. CarerConnect does not provide any care givers and care seekers safety features. CarerConnect disclaims any liability or responsibility for any faults or problems associated with the workings (or failures to work) of these software-based features.
2.5 Communications and video/audio calls
You agree that our apps, email, in-platform video/audio calls, Whatsapp and SMS will be the official means of communication with the CarerConnect platform. We may occasionally use other messaging services or internal messaging to account holders via the platform.
As a business we take the welfare of all users (care seekers/care givers/visitors) of the platform as our number one priority. As such we reserve the right to monitor all and every communication(s) transmitted via the CarerConnect platform. For clarity this involves recording and scanning using various artificial intelligence and in person all video/ audio calls through the platform. For safeguarding and training purposes we hold these recordings for a period of up to 30 days.
2.6 As part of CarerConnect’s video/ audio call in platform messaging feature care givers who are currently ‘live’ on their profiles will have their status indicated by a green ‘Live’ button. This will allow potential clients to message and arrange a call with other care givers in real time. A decision to accept this request is entirely at the discretion of the care giver.
3. Responsibilities of the User

Each Care Seeker is responsible for complying with all applicable employment, anti-discrimination and other laws in connection with any relationship they establish with a Care Giver. Among other things, Care Seekers must verify that the Carer they select is legally entitled to live and work in the UK , and perform any other verification or other checks for the position they are hiring, such as identity, qualification, background and reference checks. In addition, Care Seekers must comply with all applicable anti-discrimination legislation including but not limited to the Equality Act 2010. Accordingly, Care Seekers shall not post any job that directly or indirectly promotes age, sex, race, religion or belief, disability or other forms of prohibited
Care Givers must also ensure they are in compliance with the Care Standards Act 2006, the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 and all other legislation and Governmental Authority guidance applicable to the care of children or vulnerable adults in force in the UK from time to time.
Care Givers undertake to hold any registration and a valid licence from appropriate authority or authorities as may be applicable for your services. Childcare Providers/Childminders in the UK must be registered with Ofsted, childminders in Wales must be registered with CSSIW (Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales), and Childminders in Scotland must be registered with the Care Commission, and be in compliance with the additional legislative requirements applicable to childminders, including following the Early Foundation Stage Years curriculum.
