The carer is paid their rate agreed with you less the platform, insurance and transaction costs, which total 12.5%, i.e. if you pay the carer £15.00 an hour, the carer receives £13.12. It is Curam’s policy that no care assistant on the platform earns less than the London Living Wage per hour, currently £10.55, with the addition of our commission this rounds up to a minimum rate of £12.20 per hour on our platform.
