We are looking for Helpers in Basingstoke and surrounding areas.

Good Life Sorted is an award-winning social enterprise company that connects older adults and their families with hand-picked, vetted individuals in their local neighbourhood – Helpers - who provide a range of home help services for a fee.

The Helpers are self-employed, which means they can pick the hours they work and set their rates. There is no personal care involved with the role of a Helper and no experience is required.

To become a Helper, you must be:

- Over 18

- Trustworthy, reliable and punctual
- Confident in managing challenging situations
- Flexible and able to show initiative
- Good listeners
- Comfortable using technology
The process is simple. As a Helper you join our community, you create an online profile and you choose the services you are happy to offer. Good Life Sorted will then match you with older adults locally who need your help.

Services our Helpers typically offer:

· cleaning and laundry
· home help
· companionship
