Wrong question. It is a loaded question this one. I would ask, what would you suggest to MENCAP management to stop the wrong types of people from starting at MENCAP?

Easy, get them to do trial shifts, at interview they all say, yes, I would love to do that. Yes I can do that, lets see them really do it before we let them join us.
