Having Fun makes for Better Careers

Zero Three Care Homes provides residential care to young adults with learning disabilities in a number of locations throughout Essex, offering a wide range of opportunities to support and empower people to enhance their quality of life.

We work hard to make sure our staff are included in the fun, which goes a long way to making sure they remain enthusiastic about giving excellent quality care.

A great example of this is our recent trip out with the residents from a number of our homes to a local Splash Park where service users and staff alike enjoyed the warmth of the sun and the sensory stimulation of the water.

Other activities our staff have had the opportunity to take part in with our service users over the summer are karting, beach parties, BBQs, trips away to CenterParcs, the Lake District, Wales and Lincolnshire. Last Christmas staff enjoyed a trip out to Winter Wonderland in London with a group of our service users.

Having fun is obviously only a part of the story. We also invest in a robust training programme for all our staff, offering excellent personal development opportunities.
Many of our Home Managers started out with us as Support Workers with no previous care experience and Bryony (shown in one of the pictures) has just completed her Masters Degree in Analysis and Intervention in intellectual and Developmental Disabilities through
the TIZARD centre in Kent, a course supported by Zero Three Care.

If you have ever felt that your job is not fulfilling enough, that it is mundane or unrewarding then Zero Three Care may be the solution. Care isn’t just a job. Not only do our staff gain everyday rewards for seeing our service users have fun, grow and develop, but the care industry can open doors and opportunities to them that other industries cannot.
