Welcome to Both Worlds CIC
Thankyou for visiting our site.
At Both Worlds CIC we provide bespoke (individually tailored) support, including personal care, for anyone aged 13+ that wants or needs it - Elders, Disabled People, lone parents, young people in transition or facing difficulties in their lives. It is our aim to include anyone that needs social care and support. We are based in Southampton and operate around (but not limited to) the Hampshire area. Formed from and run by social care service users and social care worker; together we are Both Worlds.
On this site you will find detailed information on who we are and our experience, our services, openings for employment and volunteer work, training courses that we offer, some information about our CQC (Care Quality Commission) registration and private areas for our personnel and customers. This information can be accessed by using the navigation bar on the left hand side of the page. If you have any queries, please contact us via any of the means on our contact page.
To begin, please take the time on this page to read a little about our vision, aims, our values and principles. We believe that these attributes are fundamentally important to the way we deliver our services and is what separates us from other care agencies.
We seek to be recognised and respected as an excellent provider of innovative, bespoke support services that provide an alternative to traditional day services and domiciliary care; equally valuing its service users and workers.
Both Worlds aims to support its service users to lead the life style they wish to lead, preserving their dignity and freedom of choice and to provide good working conditions for its support workers.
Values and Core Principals
Above all, Both Worlds values people and believes that diversity enriches our lives. We are committed to upholding the human and civil rights of those people whose lives we touch.
Both Worlds endorses the principles of:
- Self-determination - the right to be autonomous and to define who we are;
- Equality - the right to access and enjoy the same material comforts, wellbeing, freedoms, opportunities, facilities and relationships as each other;
- Inclusion - the right to participate fully with our differences embraced;
and seeks to promote affirming and empowering practice.
These values govern the nature of our services. Although we are not perfect and mistakes happen, we will do our utmost to see that our values and principles are upheld and will always strive to improve.
