Who We Are
People told us that they wanted services they could trust
Our organisation was set up as a response to the aspirations expressed by families caring for children, young people and adults with disabilities, additional or specific needs.
We offer services that are flexible and demonstrate a warmth for those closest to them. Our three Directors all have a wealth of experience in this field. All income raised provides direct services for the benefit of disabled children, young people, adults, and families. We have ambitious plans and a great deal of enthusiasm whilst retaining a prudent and sensible approach to growth.
Entrust Care Partnership will offer social value through its governing aims of:
- Having service users at its heart with an Advisory Body of parents and carers within its structure ensuring family voices are integral.
- Safeguarding and protecting vulnerable children, adults, and their families
- Being driven by the values of inclusion, independence, choice & control
- Striving to raise awareness of the needs of disabled children, young people, adults, and their families and combating barriers to opportunity
- Combining health and social care services within one organisation which will demonstrate impact
- Commitment to partnership and collaborative working, building trust at both local and regional levels
Entrust Care Partnership was established to offer direct service provision for the benefit of its service users.
We are not pursuing financial gain but intend to run a business which invests any surplus demonstrating social value and promoting positive social, economic, and environment impacts.
The Directors collectively have over thirty years experience in the caring profession. This passion for achieving the highest standards of care naturally allows us to embrace the ethos of the Social Value Act.
Local Authorities are reviewing their position as service providers, increasingly commissioning services and seeking to reduce public sector spending.
The commissioning landscape itself is changing with more control being given to service users to purchase their own support and care.
There is anecdotal and other evidence which suggests that users feel there is very limited choice of services to purchase so we intend to increase the selection available by our presence in the market.
As the vulnerable groups which form our target market are likely to feel the impact of the financial crises on their household income we will seek to offset costs by generating income streams from grant givers, commissions, fund raising, and business sales.
Our strategy is to be the provider of choice by giving a trusted, reliable, and consistent service with a competitive pricing structure. This in turn would build customer loyalty and sustainability.
We will also seek to be entrepreneurial and generate ideas for new approaches to service delivery. See our download
We aspire to deliver services under the broad banner of four key themes:
2017 Pride of Warwick District Award
We were delighted to have been nominated in the Carer of the Year Award category at the 2017 Pride of Warwick District Awards – and then absolutely thrilled and stunned to actually win!
On top of this, our 17 year old nominee Sanchia Hansen went on to receive a Judges special Achievement Award for her ongoing voluntary work. So we all went home happy! Big thanks to 102Touch FM and the generosity of the sponsors.
