Based in the Lothians, ELCAP work for adults with lifelong disabilities, lifelimiting conditions and families caring for children with significant support needs.
Now ELCAP are looking to expand their hard-working team - recruiting both fulltime and part-time support workers.
As well as offering excellent terms and conditions of service, ELCAP will also pay for any SVQ training in care and PVG scheme registration costs.
ELCAP registered manager Danny Harvie explained: "We are looking for recruits with the same set of values as ourselves and the right attitude.
The support ELCAP offer people takes various formats - including supporting adult individuals, children and their families in their own homes, as well as offering long and short-term breaks.
ELCAP believe that every person has the right to the support they need, the way they want it and for the chance to live the life they want to live.
ELCAP also work with local communities to strengthen their capacity to include people with disabilities and other support needs as valued citizens.
