Staff development and retention is a key business aspiration and there are developmental processes for promotion and greater responsibility. All our Team Leaders have been promoted within the company and manage the day to day operations of the business.
Central’s Directors provide a ‘hands on’ approach to the management and governance of the business and work closely with the team leaders. The Directors lead on the strategic business planning processes to ensure service delivery remains aligned to the vision and values of the business. The founding Directors of Central both worked within the statutory social services and the health and social care sector for many years prior to establishing the company so have an in-depth and practical understanding of the importance of quality care.
