Glasgow leading home care provider, Community Care Choice, headquartered in Shawlands, has put its weight behind Giffnock United, an initiative by Giffnock Soccer Centre to help those with Disability/ASN to be involved with football.
The £1,277 donated by Community Care Choice will provide the team with Giffnock United training strips, football strips and hoodies.
Ryan Quinn, Football Development Officer at Giffnock Soccer Centre, said:
“We have always had a policy of inclusion in terms of supporting football for all and we are delighted that the Disability/ASN team has secured this sponsorship from Community Care Choice. Funding is a challenge and this money will help to provide training strips and football strips which will give the boys a sense of belonging to the team.”
Managing Director of Community Care Choice, Joeanne Hamilton, said:
“The heart and soul of our business is caring for people in the community and we are delighted to support Giffnock Soccer Centre in this initiative. It is tremendous that this opportunity for those with Disability/ASN have a chance to get involved in the team spirit of football.”
If you have a child with Disability/ASN who would like to find out more or is interested in getting involved with Giffnock United, please contact Ryan Quinn on 07771 358311. E: email@example.com
And here are some of the positive comments made by The Care Inspectorate:
We gave the service these grades
Quality of Care and Support 5 Very Good
Quality of Staffing 5 Very Good…
Quality of Management and Leadership 5 Very Good
When we visited the service and clients in their own homes we found that staff were motivated, experienced and committed to delivering a high standard of care. We decided this after: reading support plans and speaking to clients and staff.
Clients said that the support provided by staff was of a high standard and that they were encouraged to make choices, be independent, live in their own home and be involved in the community. Clients told us that staff were reliable and consistent.
We found that the service was responsive to clients changing needs and wishes and committed to support clients lead fulfilling lives. Examples of this can be found when people are supported to go to concerts, host a radio show, lead a family life, volunteer
and live in the community.
When speaking with staff it was evident that they put client’s best interests first, making sure that they meet people’s expectations and needs. We saw this when staff were working with clients and by reading support files. By providing a range of support staff help people live in their own home as independently and healthily as they can.
We thought that clients were very confident about exercising choice, and that they were provided with individualised care and support to improve their life opportunities.
We are over the moon, delighted, jumping up and down with joy and just a bit excited….we have received a 5 star grading once again from the Care Inspectorate in our 2015 inspection #fabulousteameffort
