We are KeyRing
We are an adult social care provider inspiring people in England and Wales to build the life they want to live.
People have so much potential. KeyRing support recognises and builds on this potential. People become peer supporters for each other, they build connections and they become valued members of their local community.
The KeyRing approach is based on designing services around individuals and communities, their connections, their skills and their ambitions.
We are always looking for enthusiastic people who share our values. That’s more important than particular qualifications or career history.
Rights and Respect
Inclusion and Influence
"This is one of the best working environments I have ever been with. The support from line manager and my team mates has been impeccable and very commendable. I am thankful for the opportunity to work and support vulnerable adults who became a part of me. I will miss the team and my Members. KeyRing holds a special place in my heart."
"KeyRing is the perfect example of an organisation that prioritises its employees and treats them with respect. They recognise that we can only do our best work when we are on our best form and I always felt able to go to my managers when I needed advice or support. I have learnt so much but in an environment that allows room for mistakes because they understand the nature of this job and how unpredictable and taxing it can be. They have truly set the standard for how I want to be treated by employers going forward and I am truly saddened to be leaving the team."
