0:10 The We Care Project was
0:12 originally set up because we realised
0:14 at the back of the pandemic
0:15 that there were a lot of people in Right at Home
0:18 that were having their own struggles
0:21 and also some that weren't getting the development that they required.
0:24 So what we did is we decided to put a project in place
0:27 that focused on well-being and also career pathways.
0:31 So we'd look at giving carers or office members the opportunity
0:35 to progress within the company,
0:37 but also have someone to turn to at times of need.
0:41 This project has had a huge impact
0:44 on our staff.
0:45 There's been lots of benefits for them.
0:48 Their well-being has improved,
0:51 their work has improved.
0:53 They feel they have someone to talk to if they need to.
0:58 I had a stroke six months ago,
1:01 shortly after leaving work.
1:03 If I hadn't been working for Right at Home
1:05 and had this new project in place where
1:07 the support is there, I 110% think I would be permanently on the sick.
1:13 There’s stroke support misunderstanding
1:15 because you can't explain fatigue.
1:19 No one gets it because it's not a continuous thing.
1:22 It's every day is totally different.
1:25 And the way that I get support
1:27 I find it amazing, I really do.
1:29 I don't think I'd be working
1:31 if it wasn't for this company right now.
1:34 I have no vision of me working anywhere else
1:37 just because I'd like to pay back the support I've had.
1:40 This shows by looking after them
1:42 how you can get commitment off your employees.
