Our care staff fill in an application form and are then interviewed to see if we believe they are suitable for a post at Independent Living. If they are suitable we submit a ‘Disclosure and Barring Form’ to check that the person does not have a criminal record which would put our customers at risk. We then seek at least two references.
If the references are satisfactory, staff then undergo training, they shadow existing staff when meeting with clients until we believe that they are confident and able to work unsupervised.
