|We are delighted to have been selected as one of as one of a small number of best practice representatives in the Care sector in this year’s Parliamentary Review.
The Review is a publication that shares innovative strategies and showcases sector-specific commentary from organisations, companies, ministers and executives all over the country.
It has been a privilege to be involved and to have an article which highlights the progress we have made and the day-to-day challenges we face.
Despite a change in government funding in 2000, we have seen growth from a turnover of £20,000 in year one to £3 million today. We provide accommodation for over 100 people and have opened a new home each year since 2001.
The article highlighted aspects such as our forward-thinking attitude and strong ethos. A key part of this is the belief that we should provide houses which we and our families would be prepared to live in.
Another example of best practice highlighted was the Weston Community Centre, which focuses on teaching individuals with new skills and building their confidence. This is done through a wide range of practical courses such as baking, food hygiene, interview techniques as well as maths and English.
Jim Bisset, Chair of the ECHC Board congratulated us on the national recognition. He said, “I am delighted that the Review has emphasised the major contribution ECHC makes to the care of vulnerable adults within our society.”
