We directly employ our staff who visits clients or service users home and so our staff is subject to a robust recruitment process including at least two references, Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) enhanced disclosure checks, as well as checks against the Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) register and the Protection of Children Act (POCA) list. In addition, our staff is thoroughly vetted during the recruitment process to ensure that they have the right skills, attitude, and personality for homecare work.
We use the care certificate package to induct our staff in addition to the quality training packages from Mulberry House (professional health and social care training provider) to provide in-house induction and training for our staff.
