A new e-marketplace launching soon aims to provide information and choices for social care provision, especially focusing on advice for people who want to remain living independently.

Leyland-based Salvere, a care focussed social enterprise, is working with CloudBuy to launch a new care e-marketplace for social care provision.

The new care e-marketplace is due to launch this month and aims to offer the public access to a wide range of social care services. The site will be called www.mycaresupermarket.com.

With an ever-growing, ageing population the provision of social care is a hot topic and of concern to everyone in the UK.

The partners say the new site offers a practical solution for anyone looking for social care provision or anyone looking for help for a family member or friend who wants to stay independent.

In a crowded and often confusing marketplace, the public is often unsure about where to go for advice and what choice is available to them in the area of social care provision.

The partner companies say the new online marketplace will provide a kind of ‘Amazon for care’ type facility; offering everyone the chance to look at a wide range of social care suppliers and services.

Additionally they will have the ability to choose the best suppliers.

Another key feature on the online marketplace is that it allows citizen to buy services via the online marketplace, safe in the knowledge that they are working with reputable service care providers and therefore offering added piece of mind.

CloudBuy has already successfully launched a similar service in Staffordshire and has over 1,000 social care providers onboard in the area.
