Corruption and Abuse of Position
Local Helping Hands is passionate about ensuring that corruption or abuse is
not tolerated to any degree. Our clients should always feel we are respectful,
compassionate and they can rely on our integrity and confidentiality. Every
member of staff will continually act with this in mind. Any abuse of position will
be dealt with by the directors of Local Helping Hands in a timely manner.
Duty of Care
Our role does not stop at practical help in the home. We believe that we have a duty of care to safeguard adults. We will therefore flag up any concerns or changes to the client’s health and wellbeing to the designated next of kin.
Criminal Record Disclosure
We require all staff to hold a current Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). This will be reviewed regularly. Any criminal charges brought whilst in employment must be disclosed to your manager.
