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.
