At Enable, we invest in our teams so that everyone feels included, trusted and empowered. Our people bring the benefit of all their talents, values and personality, to serving the people we work for.
Our Committed to Care ethos is our belief that to deliver human rights driven, self-directed support, we need to remove any barriers that stop our people from achieving this. That's why everyone who works here is empowered to build genuine relationships with the people we work for, and to problem-solve, challenge and advocate for their human rights every day.
Our PA (personal assistant) model of social care has been built to nurture good quality, natural and lasting relationships between PAs and the people they work for.
“It is personally rewarding. You're part of a team where your input is always heard and considered, and you build relationships with new and wonderful people.”
As a not-for-profit care provider, we have invested over £2.5m in consistently paying our front-line staff more than the Scottish Living Wage.
Committed to Care provides all our staff, including our frontline care workforce, a minimum rate of pay no less than the real Living Wage.
We pay an enhanced rate of £11-£12 per hour in areas where social care recruitment and retention has traditionally been challenging. This has had a positive impact in those areas. We share our experiences with the Government and trade unions to help campaign for better pay for everyone in social care.
We value and respect everyone who works for us. Our PAs are well trained to feel confident at work, and are supported to work flexibly around their personal lives and commitments.
Everyone has the opportunity to grow. We invest in the continuous development of all our people and believe our approach enables them to reach their highest potential.
