    About Eastlight

    We are a person-centred, forward-thinking organisation that cares deeply about our customers and our people, with a strong sense of purpose.

    To add real value back into our communities, it’s important for us to have a diverse workforce. We are working with accessibility experts at Purple, to ensure our application and interview processes are accessible for all.

    We support, develop, nurture, and invest in our people, so they reach their full potential and have the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to add real value. We have developed our Succeed at Eastlight scheme to give people the opportunity to start a new career pathway regardless of age or career history.

    It’s our people who support the continued development of our homes and communities as places our customers love to live and Eastlight as a place people love to work.

    Marisa Pereira

    "The £200 Health and Wellbeing grant makes me feel so appreciated.

    "What could be better than having a little extra to actually spend on ourselves which, in turn, has a direct impact on those around us.

    "I will probably spend the money on my painting and craft hobby, put it towards my Reiki training or my fortnightly meditation group!"
