Curam’s 12.5% commission is included in the carer’s advertised rate, you only pay for care that is delivered and there are no joining fees or tie in contracts.

Quick Guide

On approval of the agreement the carer will also produce a shift invoice which will be for a fixed period of time and for a specific amount of money. On receipt of the shift invoice, the client enters their debit/credit card details in the secure online payment system on the platform (stripe).
