“The help we have is fantastic, we are so grateful”

Prama continue to flourish

The Dorset charity is working hard to provide support to both private and local authority clients.  Paula Jones, Operations Director, says "We are thankful to still be growing and in a strong position to support all our clients through our domiciliary care service and the ever-increasing number of community activities we provide around Poole, Bournemouth, East Dorset and beyond.  We have come a long way in the last 35 years, since Dr Chris Moran started the charity with volunteers in 1987 and have built an organisation that demonstrates resilience and sustainability in response to the increasing demands on the sector.  We still believe, as Dr Moran did, that a Christian based charity can make such a difference to people's lives." 

Paula continues, "The challenges faced across the sector affect us, as they do many care organisations.  Whilst we have a reputation for being a great employer we still struggle to recruit care workers, who are in short supply.  We simply don't have enough staff to take on the number of clients who want our services."  

The increasing reference in the wider media to the social care crisis and the BBC Panorama programme (aired on 20th March), clearly indicate the extent of the problem being faced by the social care sector.  This isn't a problem that will be easily resolved - the government's promise in the recent budget to provide an additional £2 billion to councils in England over the next 3 years to spend on adult social care services may only dent the surface. 

It's encouraging to know that at Prama, the care they deliver to clients who are funded by the local authority is just the same high quality as they deliver to private clients - as Paula emphasised: "We provide an identical service to our local authority clients.  We don't discriminate in any way and firmly believe that no-one should be disadvantaged because they are not eligible for funding."
