Project aims to at­tract car­ers

The Oban Times - - News -

AN IN­NO­VA­TIVE project in Ap­pin will get un­der way this year with the aim of at­tract­ing home car­ers to the area.

A so­cial en­ter­prise will be set up, which will see car­ers be­ing paid the liv­ing wage and work within set bound­aries.

At the Oban and Lorn Health and Care Forum this week, a mem­ber of the pub­lic said: ‘ If they don’t have to pay their staff to travel, they would be able to pay their staff more, which is a good thing for the com­mu­nity.’

In­ter­views for a co- or­di­na­tor will take place later this month and it’s hoped the project will be up and run­ning in Septem­ber.
