We are a leading health and social care charity for the Jewish community in London and the South-East. Although we care for a specific community, our employees come from all faiths, backgrounds and nationalities. It also means they’re valued and supported in just the same way we value the people we care for - at Jewish Care, love is at the heart of all we do.
Our campuses offer unique services including care and nursing homes, Retirement Living apartments and community centres.
We provide care that is Jewish at heart for older people. And we support their family members every step of the way. Every week, we touch the lives of 10,000 people.
We want to make a positive impact on the lives of Jewish people by providing excellent social care that enhances their well-being and helps them to stay connected to their community.
We’re also committed to inspiring our employees, developing their careers and creating an environment where they love every day.
Our five values are at the heart of the way we work. They drive how we act as individuals and as an organisation and shape our culture.
Our values are:
At Jewish Care, we are committed to ensuring all our staff feel valued and included.
We have a number of staff networks aimed to promote equality, diversity and inclusion – these include our REACH (race, ethnicity and cultural heritage) network and our LGBTQ+ network for staff and service users. We are a Disability Confident Employer, and in a recent survey, 95% of staff surveyed felt Jewish Care embraced diversity and inclusion.
