Caring Connections is a Merseyside based charity that specialises in delivering services that aims to reduce social isolation and improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable groups.
As an organisation one of its key services is the delivery of home care, specialising in supporting older people with long term conditions. In the past 2 years the charity has provided over 100,000 hours of care to local residents and has provided employment opportunities to over 90 local residents.
In November the organisation was rated ‘Good’ in all areas of quality by the Care Quality Commission following a thorough inspection.
Local Widnes resident Rachael Fraser is the Care Services Manager at Caring Connections, she stated: ‘It has been a really tough 2 years, as an organisation we try to work with the most disadvantaged groups, however quality and financial sustainability in this sector does not often go hand in hand. But as a charity we have put people at the forefront of everything we do and quality is paramount above everything, so this rating is really a proud moment’
Paul Growney, CEO of Caring Connections said: ‘ I am very proud of Rachael she has excelled in the role of care services manager and acts as an inspiration to other care workers on excellence within the care sector’.
Alongside this the Charity delivers a range of charitable projects including the Barbara Bettle Project which supports people bereaved by suicide, the Johnpaul Project which supports veterans and the Our Life, Our Place project which supports older people to engage in local heritage projects.
