*This list is not finite

The focus of all our services is to support and promote the independence and re-enablement of Service Users, and integration into the wider community, to enable and empower greater levels of independence, choice and community living as a result.   

e.g. adults who have a learning disability and/or a mental health condition or whose behaviour can be challenging, and need help and support to access the community or to enable them to live independently in their own flat or house, or more satisfactorily with their family. 

We belief that everyone has the right to choose the way in which they want to be cared for and supported.

We respect individual privacy and offer dignity and independence.

Specialist tasks

From time to time support workers may be asked to undertake some tasks, which may be considered to be specialist.  These tasks may be undertaken following appropriate risk assessments and only after the appropriate training.  The support worker will be provided bespoke training in the procedure before undertaking the tasks by a trainer with a relevant qualification, e.g. occupational therapist, speech therapist, or nurse etc.

Such tasks may include:

•             Peg - Gastrostomy Care - Assisting with artificial feeding

•             Changing sterile dressings

•             Catheter care – changing bags, monitoring output

•             Tracheotomy care – oral suctioning

•             Assistance with eye or ear drops

•             Ileostomy and colostomy care – changing of bags

This service is part of the Registered Providers List. The RPL is set up, monitored and updated by Barnsley Council. If you are an adult in Barnsley who is looking for packages of care and support, you can choose from the list of providers who follow a clear quality framework and have been assessed by the Council. In order to gain Recognised Provider status and the RPL quality mark, providers must meet a number of quality standards, including:

•clear agreements with customers

•a welcoming approach to customer comments and complaints

•considerate and respectful conduct of staff and volunteers

•a robust Adult Safeguarding Policy

Adults who purchase care and support services using their own money, or through a Direct Payment, are free to choose providers who are not included on the Recognised Provider List. There is no contractual relationship involved in providers appearing on the RPL. The award of the RPL logo to providers is intended to be a quality mark with which people can then make informed choices as to which providers they may decide to use.

Please note: The RPL does not represent a contract with Barnsley Council and does not allow for direct purchases from the Council to Providers. The RPL is for adults requiring services who are either in receipt of a Direct Payment (including Supported Managed Accounts) or who are private self-funders. People are advised to make their own checks when choosing providers for their care.
