Our staff are the heart of our company. They are all carefully selected through a rigorous recruitment process. This includes: an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau check, face to face interviews and training.
The qualities we look for in our staff are compassion, respect, commitment, understanding and a friendly attitude. We have people working for us from a range of ages and backgrounds but the one thing they all share is a willing approach and a readiness to adapt to the particular circumstances of our service users.
Our staff are very important to us and are continually supported throughout the year with a staff training and development programme.
All of our home care support workers have provided references, which have been thoroughly checked. They also undergo an Enhanced CRB Disclosure before being allowed to deliver care in the community.

All of our staff have the opportunity to undertake a Diploma in Health and social Care or higher qualifications depending on their position within the company.
All home care support workers are expected to follow the policies and procedures of Owen Care and Support Services, the Essential Standards of Health and Safety 2010 and the Codes of Conduct set out by the General Social Care Council.
