Charity Shops:  Directly Supporting Local People

It’s an exciting time for Prama shops!  We have six shops locally in Parkstone, West Moors, Ashley Cross, Tuckton, Kinson and on Poole High Street.  All the funds raised from our shops directly support PramaLIFE projects for Dorset's older people, people with dementia and carers. Prama shops welcome donations of toys, books, clothes, electrical items, furniture and bric-a-brac and we are able to offer a delivery and collection service for large items (such as furniture).  We rely on volunteers to help keep our shops running too - please get in touch via this site or call into one of our shops to find our more.  We will also be launching online sales on ebay shortly.

“Prama is my third company and best by far!”

Prama Recruitment

ACCTA2Prama is improving the career opportunities available to its staff to allow us to optimise the benefits our employees receive from the company. We are being proactive in our endeavours to ensure staff not only enjoy their role, but are also able to progress on to bigger and better things should they wish to. 

Many health care companies do not necessarily place an emphasis on this aspect of the business but Prama is looking to manifest its caring ethos for our many patients in the way we treat our workforce.

Living Wage From 1st October 2015

Care work is sometimes viewed as being a low paid occupation and this is one of the many reasons for why there is a shortage of staff in the industry. To help improve the situation, Prama will be paying all of our staff the living wage, effective from the 1st October.

The increase in pay will ensure all members of staff will be able to afford a good standard of living which will naturally boost morale and job satisfaction in general. In addition, staff turnover is likely to decrease as a result and this will benefit our patients as there will be an increase in the availability of care workers.

Furthermore, we will be offering the best mileage rates as well as award winning training courses in order to further assist our staff in developing their career.

For new starters, our courses will incorporate the new obligatory Care Certificate to ensure all new workers are qualified and this is something which existing staff can volunteer to achieve if they would like to.

Workforce Development Programme

Our Workforce Development Programme will be seeing continued improvements and this will allow all members of staff the chance to explore different opportunities to take their career to the next level.

We are planning to implement a three-tiered care package consisting of domestic, personal and nursing care to provide customers with a multi-faceted service that can be tailored to their needs by allowing them to choose any combination of the three.

Given the new training and care package approach we will be adopting, we will now be able to offer a flexible and dynamic service to our clients by allocating Care Support Workers based on the areas they are trained in, which will have positive repercussions both for our staff and for the customers themselves.
