RNID transfers care and support services to private provider

RNID has completed the transfer of its care and support services to a private care provider.

The hearing loss charity has announced that Achieve Together, which provides care for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, has acquired RNID's residential and community services across England and Wales.

RNID’s care service workers have transferred to Achieve Together as part of the move. The transfer was completed at the end of June.

The charity says it “conducted a thorough search to find an organisation who met their strict criteria of being a provider with a strong track record, committed to ensuring continuity of care for the people we support”.

The private firm has “already been undertaking a listening and co-production” exercise with RNID staff and service users “to ensure the services can transfer as smoothly as possible”.

“We believe Achieve together is well placed to invest in our services, support them to grow and continue to run them in the future,” said RNID chief executive Mark Atkinson.

Emma Pearson, Achieve Together chief executive, added: “We are incredibly excited and proud, to be welcoming RNID’s care and support services, and dedicated teams, to Achieve together.

“We will be focussed on collaboration and importantly, co-production, as we all work together to deliver the best specialist support through the amazing teams, our networks and our partnerships, including with families”.

The RNID had changed its name to Action on Hearing Loss over the last decade but reverted back to its original name after research found it was “more popular and trusted”.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
