Sunderland Care and Support is a Local Authority owned trading company supporting a wide range of vulnerable people across the City of Sunderland.
At Sunderland Care and Support we aim to be a trusted provider in the delivery of high-quality customer focused social and health care services.
Our Single Point of Contact.....
Sunderland Care and Support, as part of the Altogether Better Alliance in Sunderland, operates an integrated Health and Social Care Single Point of Contact for Recovery at Home services.
Recovery at Home provides a rapid response and support to people with health and social care needs, enabling people to remain in their own home rather than being admitted to hospital or into long term care. The service also provides support to people, when they are discharged from hospital, helping them to regain their independence and confidence.
What you can offer.....
As a Call Handler, you will be a key point of contact for health and social care professionals and patients.

This is not your standard contact centre job and we are confident that it will prove to be an excellent career choice for applicants with a passion for providing first-class customer service and who want to be at the forefront of the interface between health and social care.
