Regard is a national provider of social care services to people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and acquired brain injury. Regard specialise in supporting people with complex needs and people on the autistic spectrum. Service models include registered care homes, supported living schemes and services to people who live in their own homes.

Regard provides a ‘whole life’ experience for vulnerable people to enable them to live as independently as possible and to fulfil all of their citizenship rights in their local communities.

Regard’s experience has been extremely positive and the feedback at the end of every accreditation assessment was used as a learning and development tool for the company to better understand the needs of its workforce and to respond effectively within a recognised framework of national best practice.

Achieved Bronze award in November 2012

Quickly followed by the Silver award in November 2013.

Successfully gained the Gold award in August 2015.

Why IIP?

The people they employ and the people they support are extremely proud of this huge accolade and over 150 ‘gold parties’ have been held simultaneously across England and Wales on the 30th of September to celebrate this success.

Following the September 2015 launch of the Investors in People Sixth Generation Standard, Regard’s next steps will be for assessment against this new framework and they aim to achieve the new Platinum award.
