What they say about us

We are reliable

“We have used SRA to fill temporary accommodation support roles in the mother and baby unit we manage. I always found SRA responsive to our staffing needs, even out of hours and sometimes with short notice. All SRA staff met our requirements, with up-to-date DBS’s, a full employment history and were fully trained and qualified. SRA billing was always on time and made easy for us.”

Person-centred care services

“Working for the SRA was an incredibly fulfilling experience. SRA’s commitment to person-centred care was evident in everything we did. We were trained and encouraged to build meaningful relationships with the individuals we cared and provided support for and to tailor our approach to their specific needs and preferences. The teamwork and camaraderie among the care and support staff in the various homes were remarkable. We supported and learned from each other, creating a positive and empowering work environment. I will always cherish the memories and the valuable lessons I gained from working for the Specialist Recruitment Agency (SRA).”

We care about our carers

“I am delighted to share my heartfelt testimonial about my experience with SRA, where I worked from 2007 to 2010. They have truly proven themselves to be an exceptional organization dedicated to working with young people and children in homes.

One aspect that stood out to me was their unwavering commitment to providing their staff with the necessary training to excel in their roles. From the very beginning, I was impressed by the extensive and comprehensive training programs offered by SRA. Their dedication to equipping their staff with the right skills and knowledge was evident in every aspect of their training.

The training sessions were meticulously designed, covering a wide range of relevant topics, including child development, behaviour management, trauma-informed care, safeguarding, and effective communication techniques. Each training module was thoughtfully crafted to address the unique challenges and requirements of working with young people and children in homes.

What truly set SRA apart was their emphasis on hands-on learning experiences. They incorporated practical simulations and case studies into the training, allowing staff members to apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios. This approach not only enhanced our understanding but also boosted our confidence in dealing with challenging situations effectively.
Moreover, the trainers at SRA were exceptional. They were not only experts in their fields but also compassionate individuals who genuinely cared about our professional growth. They provided continuous guidance, feedback, and support throughout the training process, ensuring that we were well-prepared to make a positive impact on the lives of the young people and children we would be working with.

The commitment to ongoing professional development was another commendable aspect of SRA .They offered regular refresher courses, workshops, and seminars to keep us updated with the latest research, best practices, and emerging trends in the field. This proactive approach to training reflected their dedication to providing the highest quality of care to the young people and children they serve.

Thanks to SRA comprehensive training programs, I felt confident and well-prepared to work with young people and children in homes. The knowledge, skills, and support provided by the agency were invaluable, allowing me to connect with and make a positive difference in the lives of the individuals I encountered.

I wholeheartedly recommend SRA to anyone seeking an organization that not only prioritizes the well-being of young people and children but also invests in the professional growth and development of their staff. Their commitment to training and preparation sets them apart and ensures that the individuals they serve receive the highest level of care and support.

Thank you, SRA, for your outstanding dedication to creating a positive impact in the lives of young people and children. I am grateful to have been a part of your team.”
