Westminster Homecare is an organisation that has successfully developed since 1999, with 1,100 staff now providing quality, user-focused domiciliary care and specialist services during around 30,000 visits per week, to 3,000 service users.
Rosemarie Duncan, Deputy Manager of Westminster Homecare Ltd (Havering), started with the company in 2001 as a care support worker. Since then, she has always used Barking & Dagenham College’s courses – not just in health & social care, but leadership and management – to drive her own career development.
Now in a position of some influence within her organisation, and still a BDC student at the time of writing, Rosemarie says she feels “blessed to know that I am able to pass on what I learn to my staff.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Barking & Dagenham College, and have great trust and confidence in the team. The experiences they offer have helped me to become a good communicator and leader, which in return have motivated my staff members to enrol on similar courses. Two members of my staff have recently enrolled on a Level 4 Health & Social Care course.”
