Welcome to Unity Dorset: Approved Dorset Council Framework Provider & ISF Provider
We are so so happy to be writing this blog about our recent achievement of being approved on the new Dorset County Council’s provider framework – Learning Disabilities!
Running your own company and covering 3 different roles and doing the occasional support shift is a challenge on its own and so throwing a very important project into the mix made life very fast paced over the last 4 months. There was lots of early morning starts and late night finishes of completing the draft, improving the draft, deleting the draft and starting again until we were happy with the work we submitted.
We have always been visited and accredited by Dorset County Councils Quality Improvement team who, have worked with us to ensure continuous improvement to our service but, we have always found it difficult to set the time aside to submit onto Dorset County’s previous framework and so this achievement has been very much welcomed and boosted the confidence we have in our service and reaffirms that we do a fantastic job supporting adults with mental health needs or learning disabilities. Without our fantastic team of support workers who have ensured that our service users are supported according to their needs, we would not have been able to do this. A massive thank you to our team.
What does this mean? so now going forward it means that Unity Dorset can grow and we can provide our service to more individuals with learning disabilities who may previously not had access to us. We will be able to offer more opportunities to our staff and invest in more innovative ideas to support our service users to achieve independence and control!
The news of our success was followed up by a few celebratory bubbles and our team have a chance to celebrate with us with their own gift of bubbles from Unity Dorset (when not at work)
We look forward to our future and continued partnership with Dorset County Council
Love Colleen and Grant Waller
