Earley Day Service achieves accreditation
09 June 2014
Optalis are delighted to announce that our Earley Day Service is now accredited by Support with Confidence (SWC) - a joint initiative between West Berkshire and Wokingham’s local authorities Trading Standards and Adult Social Care Services which makes checks on factors including:
- each Optalis applicant’s background
- their qualifications and experience
- their level of customer service, and;
- their compliance with legal standards.
This allows SWC to provide a pre-approved list of businesses and individuals which serves to reassure members of the public who wish to buy a care and support service; either for themselves or a loved one, that the service they buy will be safely delivered.
The team successfully completed a series of statutory training requirements that met the criteria set out by the Support With Confidence scheme.
Tony Verdugo, Service Manager, said: "as the service manager for Earley Day Service, I would like to express my thanks to my team for their perseverance, commitment, and dedication in completing the necessary requirements. I am extremely proud of them and our achievement, and look forward to supporting our other services in being an accredited support provider under the Support with Confidence Scheme."
