Our services are delivered from a highly skilled, professional and dedicated local workforce that treats people with the utmost dignity and respect.
All of our staff are recruited as per the Care Inspectorate guidelines. Staff must have 2 references, a PVG scheme membership, 3 days induction training and at least 20 hours shadowing in the community with a senior member of staff.
We are focused on the outcomes the individual wants to achieve, and seek to involve people in all aspects of their daily living routines so they can maintain control over their lives.
Our adult care at home services enable and encourage service users to live a full and valued life. We help and support individuals to live as independently as they are able, ensuring they can continue to enjoy life at home.
Rainbow Services also offer children and young people person centric support in a wide range of activities.
Staff can offer support to learn life skills such as money, travel, personal care through practical activities and one to one support. We also offer opportunities to experience new activities or situations including but not limited to skiing, attending concerts, attending boys brigade or girl guides. Where a child or young person requires support to facilitate a therapy this can also be provided for example hydrotherapy or animal therapy. Support can be based in the home or in the community.
Once a child or young person begins service use with Rainbow, staff use GIRFEC principles to formulate a care plan which highlights areas of interest and areas to develop. To facilitate this, staff have received training on the principals of SHANARRI wellbeing indicators, which form part of our individualised care plans and are then given specialised training on any identified need that arises. This is either delivered by our training department or in conjunction with local authority partners. Staff also receive a comprehensive induction process which covers Child and Adult Protection, Manual Handling and Autism , along with training on legislation specific to children and young people. Rainbow Services also provide refresher training and practical training by senior carers in the home. Support is provided to families and staff through a dedicated on call system.
