Colin Care obtained their certificate of Registration from the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) on 6th January 2009. The company is now officially registered as a domiciliary care company that meets the regulations and standards set by the government to provide this service.
Phyllis McQuillian, Manager of Colin Care is delighted that the company has achieved this significant and important milestone.
“Colin Care is actually one of the first companies to receive their registration after the new legislation was introduced. We had to ensure that all of our documents were in order and that our quality of service is at the highest standard. We are steadily expanding our company and this registration reinforces our ability to do so. This in turn will create more jobs for the Colin area, an especially important factor given the current economic climate.
As a social economy project we will reinvest any profits made back into the local community. Hopefully, as our company continues to grow we can achieve this aim not only in financial regeneration but also in injecting new skills and jobs into the area.
Finally I would like to thank our staff for all of their hard work ensuring that we provide a first class service for the elderly and vulnerable members of the Colin community, without whom our company would not be the success it is today.”
Annie Armstrong, Manager of Colin Neighbourhood Partnership, who helped establish Colin Care, thanked those who helped get the company to this point.
“When we established Colin Care in 2005 we would have been lost without the help and expertise of both the South Eastern Trust and Care Circle. John Compton, Chief Executive of South Eastern Trust and Ciaran Sheehan, Managing Director of Care Circle, were instrumental in helping us to establish the foundations of the business and secure care packages. We owe them both our thanks and gratitude for the company reaching this important milestone.
We intend to continue to grow the company over the coming years to ensure that the elderly and vulnerable members of our community have the best possible care.”
