All staff undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, this was formerly known as CRB; Criminal Records Bureau check. In Scotland the equivalent is PVG – Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme.
As a care provider, we have a duty to ensure that we safeguard our customers; safeguarding means protecting people’s health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. This is fundamental to creating a high-quality home care service.
All of our care staff work to the regulatory Codes of Practice; including that of the Health and Care Professions Council – England; the Care Council for Wales and the Scottish Social Services Council.
