Covid-19 Vaccinations - We've been jabbed!
With the continued rollout of the Covid-19 vaccinations across the UK, part of the biggest inoculation programme this country has ever launched, we're please to announce that all of our First4Homcare staff have now had their first vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus.
Our team were included as high priority within the vaccination programme and we see this as a huge step forward in our ability to keep our clients both safe and well.
We still have very strict infection control protocols in place and will continue to wear PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) as guided by Public Health England and Local Authority guidelines for the foreseeable future.

Real Living Wage - November 2020
The real Living Wage is a UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by nearly 7,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs and is based on the cost of living. First4homecare are proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.
The Living Wage campaign is an independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis - it provides an ethical benchmark for responsible pay.
The new rates for 2020/21 were announced on 9th November 2020 as £9.50 per hour in the UK and £10.85 for London.

VE Day Celebrations - 8th May 2020
VE Day was a date that many of our clients remembered perhaps as young children, adolescence or young adults in war time service. We didn't want the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions to totally prevent celebrations, so we delivered a cream tea to each and everyone of our clients in the safety of their own homes.
Apart from ensuring they enjoyed a delicious treat, safety was the order of the day with tea delivered by masked staff!
