The document envisaged will summarise the range of services provided and the limits of {{org_field_name}} provision in line with {{org_field_name}}’s CQC registration. It can be produced in different formats in line with the individual’s communication needs. Details should be adjusted in line with individual service provision.

Timeframes

We are able to provide services as needed on any time basis in the short term, including “one-offs” (eg to provide relief cover for another agency), medium and longer terms [specify timeframes that apply to your agency here].

Minority groups

We welcome referrals from or on behalf of people from ethnic, social, cultural or religious minority groups. We will discuss an individual’s special needs and preferences at the time of our agreeing to provide a service and will seek to meet requirements as closely as possible or to refer on to appropriate sources of help elsewhere.

Timing of services

We are able to provide services at any time required [or insert here any limitations to the dates, days or times of the day or night when you cannot provide a service].

Working with an existing carer

Our care workers are happy to work alongside an existing carer, family member or friend. We will explore this issue at the time of making a needs assessment and before starting to provide a service so that the position is clear to all concerned.

Insurance

Our business is covered by a Public Liability insurance.

Limits to Our Service

Local authority funding

If a person’s fees are paid by the local authority, we cannot significantly change {{org_field_name}} provided without consultation with the relevant care manager.

Summary

{{org_field_name}} is in the business of helping people who need care. We are constantly reviewing our services and are always willing to discuss the particular needs of an individual. If at all possible, we will try to provide a service which meets their needs and preferences.
