1 – 3 Year Strategic Priorities:
As a CPD-accredited provider we invest heavily in the training and development of our staff, not just for their sake but with the aim of having a skilled and fulfilled workforce of staff who stick around long enough to build strong relationships with clients.
London Living Wage
We signed up to the London Living Wage commitment in October 2018 because we believe people should receive higher pay for supporting someone than they would for stacking shelves. We want to reward what we see as skilled and vital work: a support worker can have an invaluable impact on the life of their client, from supporting them to learn new skills and increase their confidence, to offering friendship and consistency. We already pay approximately 95% of our staff the equivalent of the London Living Wage or higher, and by signing up to the commitment we hope to be doing so for 100% of our staff by April 2019*.
*currently, if staff come to us with no experience we may choose to develop them first and gradually increase their rate to eventually meet the London Living Wage. These staff still begin on more than the minimum wage.
