Our focus is on providing a range of flexible support services, including supported living, floating support, and home care, that are tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of each individual. Our team of experienced and compassionate support workers is dedicated to empowering individuals to live their best lives, reach their goals, and achieve their full potential.

It is believed that complaints and compliments are a valuable indicator of the quality of the service and an opportunity to improve that quality.  BEST2CARE assure Clients that no-one will be victimised for making a complaint and it is encouraged that Clients instigate the complaints procedure whenever it is felt that this is necessary. It is not wished to confine complaints to major issues. Clients should comment when relatively minor matters are a problem to them, such as receiving cold food, being kept waiting without explanation or being spoken to in a manner that they do not like. It is the policy that all matters which disturb or upset a Client should be reported, recorded, and corrective action should be taken. Only in that way can we work towards meeting our aim of continuously improving our service. It is also good for the staff to be informed when their work has been appreciated. 

The commitment is that: 

  • All complaints will be taken seriously
  • All complaints will be acted upon with fairness and impartiality
  • Clients are entitled to involve an impartial third party in the complaint procedure if they so wish. 

Please inform  BEST2CARE of your complaints or concerns first. However, Clients and their representatives may take their complaints to persons in authority outside the Company. For Clients funded all or in part by Social Services or the Primary Care Trust, complaints may be directed to them. For privately funded clients, a range of advocacy services are available locally and they will be happy to help you deal with the complaint.
