Working with Birchwood Highland

We recognise that our staff are our greatest asset, and in order that we can provide the best possible service to the people we support, we need to ensure a happy workforce who feel valued, able to offer ideas on how the company should develop, have the opportunity for all the training and development they need, and who really feel part of the company.

We are accredited as an Investors in People and Investors in Young People organisation, and holders of the Healthy Working Lives Gold Award and Volunteer Friendly Award.

The services we provide are rated as 'excellent' by the Care Inspectorate including under the category of staffing, management and leadership and quality of care.  All of these are a reflection of the motivation of our staff to provide the highest quality of care and support.
