We’re launching a new initiative within the company called Give and Gain. This is aimed at giving something back to the communities that we live in, whilst spending time with the people our service is designed to help and support.

We feel that we all spend too much time looking at the computer screen and on the phone rather than actively getting out into the community and spending time with people!

Therefore, HomeCareDirect is donating 1 day a year to local charities for each of our head office staff to volunteer in the community with a range of people with varying support needs. This could be anything from gardening, helping out at charity fun days or simply being hands on at a community centre.

We are starting this with a day of gardening at a charity called Umbrella in Derby who offer activities for people with learning disabilities in the next few weeks.

Bruce Adams, our Business Development Manager and Mandy Shaw, our Human Resources Manager will be taking part on this day.

We will keep you posted on all the Give and Gain activities that we take part in, hopefully with some photos too!

If you know of a charity that could benefit from our Give and Gain scheme then please get in touch with us here.
