 Diploma in Health and Social Care
For several years we have provided training and assessment with regard to NVQ’s in Health and Social Care. These have now been replaced by the Diploma in Health and Social Care, which we commission from external training providers/ assessors.  We aim to ensure that the majority of our staff are trained to at least this level.

We invest very heavily in training as we believe that it lays the foundation for the delivery of a quality service for home based carers and people with care needs.
