The Colin Neighbourhood Partnership is proud to launch its 1st Social Economy Project, Colin Care. Colin Care is a new not-for-profit company who provide domiciliary care for elderly and vulnerable members of the local community. 

One year ago research showed that there were hundreds of people who needed personal care and were denied it. Colin Care aimed to provide 1st class care to those in need provided by local people. The company provided new employment in the Colin Area by investing in local people who would in turn invest any profits made into the Colin community.

Phyllis McQuillan was employed as the co-ordinator of the company and she has in turn employed a further 8 staff including one male. 

“It is important to have male and female members of staff to make the clients feel as comfortable as possible.” explained Phyllis.

Colin Care has given hope to staff to know that they can achieve all of their dreams with the support of the company.

One member of staff explained,

“After I had my baby at 16 I never thought I would ever get a job. Its great that the hours have been built around my needs and I get so much support that I now know I can do much more”

Another member of staff explained,

“After the death of my husband, I feared for my ability to cope, and here I am being supported, learning new skills, loving my job and looking after my family.” 

Colin Care has received excellent feedback to date from care managers and clients. A care manager complimented them for the excellent care provided and stated that,

“Things like this don’t go unnoticed.”

Families of clients often praise the new company on the support and care given to their loved ones.

“Thanks to the carers from Colin Care for the dedicated caring of our father which enabled him to live at home surrounded by his loving family.”

“I was able to go away on a much needed break knowing that my mum was in safe hands”

“Care provided by Colin Care is second to none.
