Our Values

Underpinning the service are the Agency’s Corporate Values.

DCAS Direct Personnel Limited’s Philosophy of Care aims to promote and reflect the values that focus upon the individual client, as being central to the care service planning and delivery of care.

In order to achieve this DCAS Direct Personnel Limited has drawn upon the fundamental core values of care which

underpin the service values. These are the basis for the provision of individual care services.

DCAS Direct Personnel Limited believes the best person to plan his or her future is that person. We help our client’s to fulfil their expectations and aspirations and we enable them to make their own plans and decisions regarding their life.

These are:

  • Respect for the intrinsic worth, dignity and individuality of the client. His / her racial identity and cultural heritage.
  • Autonomy and independence of personal decision making, including the assumption of risks as well as responsibilities associated with citizenship.
  • Choice of occupational activities, lifestyle and the maintenance of independence, including the opportunity to select from a range of options where possible.
  • Participation and integration in society, in the development of plans, policies and decisions affecting the client’s life.
  • Fulfilment of personal aspirations and abilities in all aspects of daily life, including the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge.
  • Maintenance of privacy from unnecessary intrusion, together with the safeguarding of confidentiality.
  • Equality of opportunity and equal access to services irrespective of age, race or ethnic origin, colour, creed, religion, political affiliation, disability or impairment, marital status, parenthood, gender or sexual orientation.
  • The realisation of these values together with the level of help and support required to achieve individual goals, will be a unique process for each individual – as everyone is a unique individual. However, the value principles remain constant and provide a foundation for the provision of care to all, regardless of personal circumstances.
