Whether you get a direct payment from the council to pay for your support, or you buy services privately, the support with confidence scheme aims to help you find personal assistants that you can trust. These will be people and organisations that have been vetted and approved on grounds of quality, safety and training.
The support with confidence scheme in Bracknell Forest is run by Action for People.
Action for People check workers who want to become personal assistants and then their details are added to a register. Members of the public with support needs are welcome to access the register to arrange their support knowing that Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, references and necessary training have been completed.
For more information you can phone Action for People on 01344 206 113 or 0118 907 6397 or visit Support with Confidence.
