Reliance works with Islington to provide homecare training

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

ISocial care staffing agency Reliance Care is working with Islington Council to provide additional training to the Council¹s vital homecare workforce. More than 1500 residents across Islington receive support from Islington¹s social service¹s team, including 348 care workers, enabling them to continue living in their own homes. To manage the demand for homecare staff, the Council works in partnership with local recruitment services providers who deliver temporary staff for long and short term support. One of the agencies, Reliance Care, has worked with Islington Council for more than five years and today provides more than 130 carers to Islington social services each week. The company¹s managing director Jayne Hanson said that, working as a partnership with the Islington Training Consortium, Reliance Care trains all care workers to the required TOPSS England standards, and also supported many of the company¹s workers to gain further vocational education.
