Temporary Scheme Manager (Former Employee) – Pinner Station – 11 July 2018
Not good if you live out. I was employed to live out, but they decided I had to move in which I did not want to do. The residents and my manager wanted me to stay on, but due to the covenant on the flat, they had to get a live in manager. The pay was not good for a live out manager.
Project Worker (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 1 June 2018
The worst employer I've ever had. Unsafe services, constant restructures, cuts t & cs, understaffed, poor quality management. A culture of bullying and cover ups and the senior management in Newcastle in a bubble. Working there made me ill.
Very busy team, never a dull moment, learnt a vast amount about housing vulnerable adults and the government funding set up for such projects. Colleagues are very supportive and will multitask across departments if necessary. Loved working at Home Group.
Supportive company, understanding and flexible
Dreadful unfair patronising yearly assessment system PtP

Support worker-level 2 (Former Employee) – Batley – 24 March 2018
You’ll be told all sorts of wonderful things about this company when you start. But it won’t be long before you realise it’s all a front. Poorly managed without a clue about the client groups they support. Not person centred care- god forbid the clients want some flexibility in their support ,the only time it’s changed is when it’s done for the benefit of the company because there’s not enough staff. Don’t expect a work life balance - the manager seems to take pleasure in making the staffs lives a misery- constantly changing the shifts and swapping rota’s without any reasonable explanation other than she can and she will- because it’s definitely not for the clients benefit, I’ve never come across anyone quite like it. Don’t expect to get your unpaid breaks either, you’ll be using those to complete your paper work or travel between customers in the community. With a good manager it could be a wonderful place to work- such a shame.
