What is the minimum age to work at Somerset Care?

By June 24, 2019

It is possible to work in residential homes from the age of 16, in supervised posts. If you want to work with people in their own homes though, you have to be over 18 years of age. The regulatory body – Care Quality Commission – has developed national minimum standards which are used to regulate the provision of service in several areas of social care. These national minimum standards lay down requirements in relation to the employment and supervision of young people. Details of the national minimum standards can be found on the website for the Commission.
