Making Care Safer for Communities

At the Quality Care Approval Scheme (QCAS), we are here to bring peace of mind to those receiving care from an Independent Personal Assistant (carer) and to those delivering the care. We undertake several in-depth checks, necessary to safeguard the service-user.

Making lives easier

Everyone deserves to receive quality care, with peace of mind that they or their loved ones are being supported by someone who is sufficiently trained and appropriately assessed.

QCAS membership is a trusted stamp of approval. The membership and assessment provide invaluable peace of mind, having undertaken the following checks which all evidence that the necessary steps have been taken to safeguard the service-user.

Rest assured, knowing every QCAS approved member will have:

  • Identification verification
  • An ID badge with a unique ID number and QR code, where their status can be checked at any time
  • Have a live, conviction-free enhanced DBS
  • Be fully trained, including all 19-mandatory modules as recommended by Skills for Care
  • Written references which have been manually validated
  • Be fully insured
  • The right to work in the UK
  • Verified and valid identification

So, what next?

When looking to source care, simply look for the trusted QCAS stamp of approval. Ask the Independent Carer for the unique QCAS ID number and use our live checker at any time to confirm their membership status.
