About SNAP

SNAP is a specialist agency, placing high calibre health & social care workers including PAs, carers, support workers, therapists, nurses, educators and rehabilitation support workers, to work with teenagers and young people with disabilities & additional needs. 

Our positions are full or part-time, permanent or temporary, daily or live-in. We place people throughout the UK and Internationally.

We match candidates not just based on their experience, but also on their 'fit' with you and your family, which is why we meet all clients seeking permanent help throughout the UK. We work directly with families and via case managers.

We have been working with families since 2001 and are committed to finding you the very best candidates - our standards are set very high! With our skill, understanding and experience, we will endeavour not only to find you a great candidate, but to provide a comprehensive, personalised service where you feel fully understood and supported.

 

SNAP History:

SNAP was started in 2001 by Sally Britton and partner Andrew Knight, whose daughter Camilla has cerebral palsy and requires support in all aspects of her life.  Camilla was our initial inspiration and the very foundation on which SNAP was built. The SNAP team always enjoy her visits to the office and Camilla continues to be our motivation and bench mark for the high quality service we are proud to offer. 

Camilla's dad Andrew, like all parents, wanted to give his daughter the very best and he realised early on that he couldn't provide all the care Camilla needed. He didn't, however, want Camilla to be just 'looked after'; he wanted high calibre, professionals who could support Camilla to maximise her opportunities.
