Introduction Services

QCAS endorsement for your introduction service

We recognise the vital role that introduction services perform introducing independent Personal Assistants to those seeking care.

QCAS endorsement demonstrates your organisations commitment to quality and safety.

Reassurance and Peace of mind for those using your service.

Quality Introductions

Providing quality introductions is essential to the success of your business.

QCAS can ensuring your Personal Assistants are:

  • Fully trained in all 19 Social Care subjects as recommended by Skills for Care
  • Have written and verified references
  • Have Public Liability Insurance
  • Have an enhanced, conviction free DBS
  • Conformed to the QCAS Code of Conduct
  • Eligibility to work in the UK
  • ID verification

This will provide confidence and reassurance to those that use your service that they and their loved ones are in the safest hands.

Here to support with concerns

Service Users can become isolated and vulnerable when problems occur with their Personal Assistant. QCAS provides a route for Service Users to raise and address concerns at no cost to you, without overstepping your restrictions as an introduction service and allowing you to free time and resources to focus on your business.

Sharing your values

We understand the importance of introduction services and the essential role you provide in enabling Care Receivers to meet quality Personal Assistants. This is why we never promote or list the Personal Assistants that have been approved under the scheme. Ensuring your business can enjoy the benefits of the scheme whilst focusing on your core activity of introducing Personal Assistants to Care Receivers.

Increase your opportunities

QCAS endorsement could increase opportunities from councils and commissioners. Demonstrating your commitment to introducing safe and high quality Personal Assistants can provide the confidence to use your introduction services and widen their access to the Personal Assistant workforce.

Promote your service with pride

In a sector with so much competition it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. QCAS is a recognised symbol of quality and safety. Peace of mind for those that access your service that they will be introduced to trained, vetted and quality assistants.

QCAS makes Personal Assistants a safe option.

Just as we all know to check our self-employed gas engineer has their 'Gas Safe' approval, QCAS introduces the Personal Assistants symbol of quality and safety in care.
