We believe every one of us makes a difference
Our teams’ wellbeing is our top priority, and we believe it’s important to foster a culture of promoting open and honest conversations.
Our benefits include tools and discounts to help employees manage their physical and financial wellbeing and mental health, including an Employee Assistance Programme.
Our support centre and each of our care homes take a unique approach to supporting their teams, from providing team breakfasts and socials to training Mental Health First Aiders.
One colleague had this to say about being a Mental Health First Aider:
I want colleagues to know that I am there, because I know what it’s like when you are coming into work and you’re struggling mentally through my own experience. The role is all about helping people, getting people to talk about their feelings. It’s about letting people know that there is someone there if they need to talk.
One care home, Abney Court, has even transformed an unused storeroom into a wellbeing room for the team. Colleagues can use the space to access resources on mental health or simply take time out in a peaceful environment.
We are committed to creating a working environment where all colleagues can achieve their full potential, free from discrimination or harassment.
We're proud to promote our diverse workforce. Having a team of different ages, genders and backgrounds ensures fresh thinking and encourages creativity and teamwork.
We are committed to nurturing an inclusive culture and affording equal opportunities to all.
