FAQs

Common questions about Tribe

How do I become a paid professional support provider?
If you are already a professional support provider or carer, then you can carry on right where you left off. Newcomers will be required to complete initial adaptive training and volunteering opportunites to begin a career in paid support providing. Once you have completed volunteering opportunities in your community, have passed a DBS check and are enrolled in the adaptive training programme, you will start to receive paid opportunities.
Why is Tribe different to other platforms?
Tribe isn't like a Facebook group or a volunteering app. Think of it more like an Uber for support provision. Tribe will bring skilled community support providers to national ‘dark patches’ where administrative costs are prohibitive or no support provision exists. We will drop the barriers to paid support work - People in rural and high inequality areas can receive industry recognised support skills with an opportunity for continuous training and development.
How many opportunities will there be?
It depends on the area in which you live. Tribe will only give you opportunities for your local community to help create a stronger and independent neighbourhood and so the opportunities are dependant on how many people require help around you.
Who employs me?
Support providers are essentially self-employed. Tribe is a facilitator of volunteering and paid opportunities. The roles Tribe will create and grow show the benefits of genuine self-employment: autonomy, choice of who to work with, flexibility, being able to develop consistent relationships with people and families and focusing on what people want. In these roles, more public and families’ own money goes directly into the front line and stays in the community.
How much can I get paid?
This depends on the type and amount of opportunities you are applying for in your community. The aim is to directly pay support providers, and because you're self-employed', you should get paid more than you would than if you were working for a company as there are no rising cost pressures.
