Employing the right people.
At Liver Care and Housing, we understand that letting someone into your home, or to provide your loved one with care and support in a residential setting, can be a big decision. We want you to know we are not an agency; we employ every care and support worker ourselves. We are committed to providing safe care and support help to those most vulnerable people in our local community. Therefore, we ensure our workforce have the right skills to do their job and enable them to develop themselves and their careers.
We like to know who we are recruiting to ensure our care and support teams consist of sensitive, compassionate, highly trained and competent people to work with unique and differing needs of those who use our service. To do this, firstly, we undertake value-based interviews. By this we mean we focus on the ‘how’ and ‘why’ a person is applying to work at Liver Care and Housing. This allows us to explore the motivation for their application and seeks to explore their behaviour and values, and how they are aligned with those of the organisation.

We then undertake a series of background checks as we have a duty to ensure that we safeguard our customers; by this we mean protecting customer’s health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. This is fundamental to creating a high-quality care service. All of our staff work to the regulatory Codes of Practice; including that of the Health and Care Professions Council – England.
All individuals joining Liver Care and Housing, require an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). These checks are designed for those planning to work in a support or care role for vulnerable adults or children, which is why they are necessary for the care sector.
