6* Care When You're Not There

Our Community and the Environment

We love our community and are always looking at different ways to improve and help our local area and the environment: 

Poop bags

After some research, we found that although biodegradable poo bags are a good step in the right direction (breaking down in a couple of years or so - the evidence for this differs so do your own research!) we felt it was important to use a product that had the least impact on the environment. 

We found poo bags that are made from cornstarch, which are 100% biodegradable and therefore leave zero waste in the environment which is what we love (!) and have since promoted them to our clients too.

Being a Dementia Friend

We wanted to understand more about this condition in order to help those we may come across either as a stranger or a client.


We found the Dementia Friend initiative and completed it to become a proud Dementia Friend

Litter Picking

We are out every day in the rural parts of our area and often come across unsightly patches of litter like the one shown on the left (used for illustrative purposes).

When we do come across them - we try to dispose of the rubbish as efficiently as possible leaving the area cleaner, presentable and with far fewer hazards for wildlife to encounter.

Co​vid-19 Crisis

During this crisis we tried to help as much as possible in which ever way we could; by looking after the pets of key workers, the elderly and those self isolating when needed, delivering prescriptions and food parcels, leaflets for the local council and being an NHS responder.

We have delivered to so many thankful people and have been so happy to do so.


We are so very grateful to all NHS staff and key workers and would like to say a huge thank you to every single one of them ❤🌈
