One to One Support Services, established in 2006, provide care in the domiciliary sector and training to potential carers.

Investors in People, an organisation which recognises and promotes good people management, has awarded One to One their Gold Standard Award in recognition of the high quality service One to One provides and the emphasis the firm puts on staff training and development.

One to One is now looking to work with Councils, schools and colleges to recruit more trainee carers, especially those aged 16-19 who may have been out of employment or education for some time, to further the organisation’s good work.

Chesterfield’s MP, Toby Perkins, said: “I commend One to One Support Services for their fantastic work in the care and training sectors and congratulate them on achieving the nationally-recognised Investors in People Gold Standard award.

“All good employers know that people are any organisation’s most important asset, so it is particularly pleasing to see the emphasis One to One place on personal training and development.

Mr Perkins added: “It’s also fantastic to see that the organisation is looking to take on young people to train as carers. With sky-rocketing youth unemployment and an aging population, domiciliary care is a sector with room for growth.”

    Hi Toby, I started working with one to one in June this year. I can reccomend the company both as a care provider and a Training Academy. I work with an amazing team of people right across the company. The investors in people gold award is an amazing achievement and as a newby can speak from personal experience. Since joining in June i have enrolled on a training course already and also have a place booked in October for more training. I receive regular appraisals from Melanie to ensure i am settled and working to my strenghts.I think lots of companies could learn from One to One Support Services and they should be championed by local press and organisations.
